On June 7, Metropolitan Epifaniy met with Colonel-General Oleksandr Syrsky, the commander of the Ukrainian Ground Forces, at the Metropolitan House.

During the conversation, they discussed the fighting that continues due to a full-scale Russian offensive and the heroic efforts of Ukrainian soldiers aimed at protecting the Homeland.

The Metropolitan assured Oleksandr Syrsky that the local Ukrainian Orthodox Church will continue the spiritual care and full support of the Ukrainian army, especially during the attack of the insidious enemy who intends to exterminate our people.

"The Lord will surely execute judgment upon the Russian impious people, who seek our disappearance as a nation through bringing destruction, genocide and terrible torture. God will not allow the enemy to win because he sees that our struggle is true and selfless," His Beatitude said in particular.

At the end of the meeting, the Primate of the OCU blessed the defenders of Ukraine and sprinkled them with holy water.
