The article is devoted to Bolshevik state campaign of seizing church reaches in Donetsk region. The article describes arrangement and implementation stages of the campaign, the attitude of faithful people and clergy towards the campaign, etc. The author illustrated that local authorities presented the campaign as will of the Soviet people, whilst in reality it met the resistance of both clergy and laity. The author believes that speciﬁc features of the campaign were to a large extent deﬁned by the fact that there were very few churches in industrial Donetsk region. Due to this fact church reaches were sometimes seized more than once. Sometimes this resulted in complete devastation of churches. In the author’s opinion the unwillingness of the local authorities to permit laymen buy out church reaches was caused by the same reason.

The article is devoted to the activities of religious associations in the territory occupied by Stalin area. In 1942 in the region there were two diocesan administration: Yenakiyevo (headed by Archpriest Arseny Knyshev) — in the jurisdiction of the Metropolitan Alexy (Gromadsky) and Makeyevka (headed by Archpriest Peter Kachevsky) is subordinate to the bishop of Taganrog Joseph (Chernoﬀ). But by September 1943, the area was open 233 churches and prayer houses. The author believes that, despite the fact that the region has been turned into a military zone, the occupiers carried out propaganda of avtokefalizm. But the real basis for action in the ﬁeld of UAOC was not. In this connection, for the separation of believers, the invaders could use group loannite stefanovtsev and sects.

This article discusses positive trends in church life in Donetsk region during the period of 1944–1953. These are establishment of the diocese, inception of theological education, increase in the level of religiosity of the population, etc. However, it should be emphasised that after Donbass had been released after the war, it started to suﬀ er again from conﬁscation of church buildings seized during the German occupation. The paper argues that the state initiated a massive attack against the church in Donbass taking advantage of characteristic features of this industrial region, namely the disunity of the newly-arrived population and a small number of church parishes. This attack proves that the improvement in the relationship between the church and the state during the war was temporary. This is also conﬁrmed by such facts as forbidding missionary activity in this region, restricting activities of the ruling archpriest — Bishop Nikon (Petin).
