Many international investigators have arrived in Ukraine to investigate and study Russian war crimes committed on Ukrainian soil. Terrible things are being revealed to our eyes. The Head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, His Beatitude Sviatoslav, said this in his daily address on the 90th day of Russia's bloody war against Ukraine.

As we can see, the Primate emphasizes, that the Russian command not only allows killing civilians, raping women, children, men, and even then publicly but also encourages this.

“Atrocities against our civilian population are becoming an integral part of this ideological war against the Ukrainian people. This is a war against crimes that the world qualifies as genocide of the Ukrainian people. Indeed, today in Ukraine David opposes Goliath," the Head of the UGCC said.

The Primate has noted that, in the context of studying and solving crimes of Russians against humanity, yesterday's speech of the head of the Russian Orthodox Church at the 30th International Educational readings held in the Kremlin is egregious. Patriarch Kirill, the head of the UGCC noted, called on teachers of the Basics of Orthodox culture to educate children on the examples of so-called heroes who are fighting in Ukraine today and allegedly defending Russia with weapons in their hands.

"The speaker did not clearly indicate what examples he was referring to, but today – when we hear the cry and moan of crippled souls in Ukraine, the voice of the blood of innocently tortured women, children and men appealing from the earth to God – a cry breaks through from the heart of an ordinary person: May God save and preserve all people from such an Orthodox culture," His Beatitude Sviatoslav emphasized.

"Lord God, bless the Ukrainian army!" the spiritual leader asked. Lord God, accept the tears, crying, and prayers of millions of Ukrainians, victims of this war!"
