On July 10-15, the General Council of the Baptist World Alliance met in Birmingham, Alabama, USA, during which the participants adopted a resolution on Russia's war against Ukraine.

According to Slovo Pro Slovo, pastor and Vice-Rector of the Moscow Theological Seminary, Alexey Markevich, reported this on Facebook.

According to the resolution, the General Council of the Baptist World Alliance condemned Russia's unprovoked and unjustified invasion of the sovereign state of Ukraine, which began on February 24, 2022, and led to the current devastating war on the territory of Ukraine.

The General Council "is appalled by the huge human casualties, especially attacks on civilians, as well as the destruction of property and infrastructure, including the senseless destruction of unprotected houses of worship, as a result of Russia's indiscriminate attacks on cities and towns in Ukraine."

The General Council of the Baptist World Alliance also expressed its condolences to the soldiers who served in both the Russian and Ukrainian Armed Forces who were killed or injured because of this war.

The meeting participants called on the European Union, the G7 and other intergovernmental organizations to redouble their efforts to support Ukraine.
