It has nothing to do with them being Orthodox. The Wikipedia page estimates that there are "14,900,000-38,080,000" Christians in Ukraine. I don't know why they have such a huge spread there. If the upper number is accurate they would make the list. I suppose nobody has ever done any good data collection and they are speculating.

I wouldn't have guessed China if I hadn't seen those numbers - that could only have been China or India. I would guess the reason India isn't on here is because it's almost entirely Hindu with a fair number of Muslim regions as well (I don't know if Buddhism, Sikhism, or Jainism are still common in India but they used to be).

I don't understand, 90% of Russian population is indicated as Christians, in fact Orthodox Christians, and how come Ukraine, which is mostly Orthodox Christians, is not included in the list? Was there an official census about belonging to a specific religion in Russia, or any other so-called Christian nations?

btw the numbers here do not match up with the quiz "5 countries with most christians by continent." For one example, Poland is included on that quiz while the UK is not, but here the UK is shown as having more Christians than Poland. There are others.

It's kinda surprising to read, that 63% of german People are supposed to be christians... I met exactly two People in my life considering themselves Christian... I feel like almost nobody here really believes in god. Germans are just saying they are christians because of traditional reasons ore something.

Was really expecting to see South Korea here as they've gone apes4!7 crazy on Christianity and you can even see the phenomenon in most of their recent films (Kollywood for Korea or Sollywood?) Also, India and Indonesia were missing. All of these around 30 million or so.

You see Christian influence in a lot of Japanese shows and movies but it's not because there are a lot of Christians in Japan. They view it more as some kind of crazy weird exotic cult, maybe the same way Americans see Shinto or Japanese animism, or maybe the way Egyptian mythology is presented in films like The Mummy or Norse mythology as in Marvel's The Avengers.

South Korea is a bit of a different story. There actually are a lot of believing Christians in South Korea. About 30% of the total population is Christian, making them the 5th most Christian country in Asia as a percentage (after East Timor, Cyprus, Georgia, and the Philippines), and 6th in Asia in terms of total number (after Russia, the Philippines, Indonesia, China, and India), but 34th worldwide.
