Protestants number between 90,000 and 100,000. Greek and Russian Orthodox adherents number about 100,000. The Jewish community is approximately 40,000, and Anglicans number approximately 21,000. The largest unrecognized religions include the Jehovah's Witnesses, with 27,000 members and Mormons, with about 3,000 members. About 350,000 people belong to "laics," the government's term for nonconfessional philosophical organizations. Unofficial estimates report that up to 10% of the population do not practice any religion at all.
