In the satellite city of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Slavutych on March 26, as a result of an offensive by Russian invaders, three people were killed and two more civilians were injured during a rally against the invaders. The winner of the "Voice of the country", priest Oleksandr Klymenko told one story that happened in Slavutych after the entry of the invaders.

"Fr. Ivan Shepida, rector of St. Elijah's Church of the UOC-MP in Slavutych, having received communion of the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, taking a cross and banners with people, went to the gathering of invaders. After approaching them, he began to preach loudly. He said, "You heathens! Take off your crosses, for Christians do not point guns at innocent people." When a well-equipped special forces soldier reprimanded him, the priest replied that he was after Communion and he was with God (and no one had ever defeated God in truth yet), and in white robes-already prepared for the funeral. And he, like people, is not afraid of them," said Klymenko.

The invaders checked the city for weapons and left its territory on March 27.
