There is a new phenomenon within the movement, a“flying community” that includes members of different ages and ethnic origins,Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Christians from Ukraine, Russia and Belarus. This presentation looks at the role of current macro-scale political factorsshaping people’s micro-level relationships within their CL community.
