President Poroshenko calls to stop attacks on the Ukrainian Church in Crimea
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called unacceptable the attack on the Church of the Holy and Equal-to-the Apostles Prince Volodymyr and Olga of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate in Simferopol in the occupied Crimea. The President’s press-service reports him as saying this during a meeting with the Heads of Churches and Heroes of Ukraine on September 2, 2017.
“We must defend our state, our citizens and our faith, as well as protect the Ukrainian Church, which recently has suffered from the attack in the occupied Crimea. We are neither going to tolerate nor accept it. We request to stop actions against the Ukrainian Church,” said Poroshenko.
