UKRAINIAN WEEKLY RANKS THE MOST SINFUL REGIONS

Ukrainian regions that are in the pit of “deadly sins”, defined the weekly newspaper Kontrakty. The first position won Odessa (142 points) for greed, followed by Donetsk and Lugansk regions, scored the same points -126. Thus, in the Donetsk region “major sin” became anger, and Luhansk – greed.

In the fourth place is Dnipropetrovsk (124 points). Here the major sins are “lust” and “extravagance”. The fifth place belongs to Sumy (123 points), which basically sinned in “despair”.

To determine the most sinful region of Ukraine, the newspaper used statistics for the last year. Statistics was correlated with eight sinful passions known in Orthodoxy: gluttony (the number of overweight people), lust (the number of cases of gonorrhea and syphilis per capita), greed (number of officially registered cases of bribery) anger (number of cases of murder and intentionally causing grievous bodily harm), acedia (the percentage of happy people), despair (the number of suicides), pride (number of unique license plates on cars).
