The First Lady of Ukraine, who is on a visit to Turkey, met with His Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.

Olena Zelenskay told about this on her Facebook page.

"In the Christian tradition, every person is considered an image of God. How the Russian army feels about this – we see daily from its regular crimes in Ukraine. And the Russian Church also supports military aggression and blesses murderers and executioners. Obviously, the Christian worldview, morals and values have no real meaning for them," Olena Zelenska writes.

After meeting with His Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, Olena Zelenska expressed high appreciation of the patriarch's support for Ukraine and the Ukrainian people.

"Meanwhile, His Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew calls the war against Ukraine nothing less than diabolical. And he adopted this stance immediately at the very beginning. Back in March, the Ecumenical Patriarchate sent first aid to Ukraine and continues to do so. And its head further testifies to the anti-human nature of the Russian war. His Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew constantly conducts prayers for peace in Ukraine, takes care of our Internally Displaced Persons in the world," the message reads.

The First Lady of Ukraine thanked the Ecumenical Patriarch for his support and assistance.
