Abstract

The purpose of the study is to analyze and publish documentary materials, devoted to the consideration and resolution of political and ideologically motivated cases in court sessions about active members of the Evangelical Christian-Baptist community of Ukraine in the second half of the XX century. The problemchronological and historical methods that made it possible to analyze the indicative trials of the faithful communities of the ECB were used. It was shown that criminal indicative coury processes and comrades’ courts were considered by the special services as an effective combination of preventive methods with punitive and repressive measures and were effective in re-educating both believers and creating an atmosphere of mistrust in society towards the Church and its moral and ethical principles; it was established that leaders and active participants of the internal church movement of the ECB managed to use indicative trials as an effective platform for the publication of a diffi cult situation with freedom of conscience in the USSR.
