From the Head of the UGCC: Let us do everything to save human life in Ukraine - фото 1
We feel that saving human life in Ukraine is possible, not only because of the courage of the defenders of Ukraine, but also because of the position of the international community. His Beatitude Sviatoslav, the Father and Head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church said in his daily address on the 42nd day of the Russian war against Ukraine.

The Primate noted that our people heroically defend their land, show examples of heroism not only by fighting on the battlefield, but also by saving lives. Last night the enemy again launched a missile strike on the most vulnerable elements of the infrastructure of the Ukrainian economy.

Several enterprises of the chemical industry were bombed, which caused great damage to the ecology of those towns and villages.

“But we especially stand up for - said His Beatitude Sviatoslav, - the destiny of those people who found themselves in the temporarily occupied territories. We know that in Kherson region, in the south of Zaporizhia region, food is running out and it is no longer possible to deliver humanitarian aid there”.

Ukrainian Mariupol is holding on heroically, yet humanitarian aid has not been delivered there either. It is becoming increasingly difficult to evacuate people from those dangerous areas.

“These humanitarian corridors are constantly under fire and most people die during the evacuation. We were all touched by the story of four-year-old Sasha from Vyshhorod district in Kyiv region, who also died during the evacuation”, the Head of the Church emphasized.

Human life during the war… What is it worth in the eyes of a man? In God's eyes it is priceless. “We feel that saving human life in Ukraine is possible, not only because of the courage of the defenders of Ukraine, but also because of the position of the international community. So let us do everything to save human life in Ukraine!” urges His Beatitude Sviatoslav.
