Given the aggravation of the military escalation in eastern Ukraine, the primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphry of Kiev and All Ukraine, has appealed to the faithful to strengthen their prayers for peace in Ukraine, reports the Information-Education Department of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.
“The Ukrainian Orthodox Church has consistently supported and supports the territorial integrity of Ukraine and calls on its faithful to pray for peace in our Ukrainian state and throughout the world,” His Beatitude stressed.
“I call upon the leaders of states and all who can prevent a new war. War is a grave sin before God!” Met. Onuphry emphasized.
