The paper deals with one of the most urgent problems of Ukrainian contemporaneity – forming of a single political nation. When studying the mechanisms for achieving the public unity we should appeal first of all to such consolidating factors as the socio-legal state and civil society. But the ethnic and religious factors are not less important for the conditions in Ukraine. Moreover, the question is, as a result, in the only ethno-religious factor. Resting on the data of statistical examinations and results of sociologic investigations, as well as the conclusions of sociologists and philosophers specializing in religion study, the author demonstrates a complicated picture of interconfessional relations in the Ukrainian society, problematical character of achieving harmony in these relations and unity of purpose in the religious space of Ukraine as a whole. Thus the ethno-religious factor in the context of Ukrainian building of the nation should be rather considered as the destructive than integrational one. The prospects of formation and functioning of the so-called civil religion in Ukraine should be considered as well.
