Transformation towards a social order based on neoliberal values in the states of east Europe has resulted in most cases in the harm for Orthodox-Christian communities. The basic thesis is that neoliberalism represents the value negation of Orthodox Christianity, due to which its universalization is characterized by a militarized approach. The examination of this hypothesis includes the analysis of the consequences of the universalization of neoliberalism in Orthodox Christian communities and in the international system. The obtained results indicate that neoliberalism requires the institutionalization of autonomous individual wills and their associations, which undermines value foundations of Orthodox Christian societies. The findings represent sufficient ground for concluding that violent imposing, even at the cost of destruction of traditional societies, is an immanent characteristic of the implementation of rigid neoliberal value system in Orthodox societies.
