"Plast" brings Peace Light of Bethlehem to combat zone
Representatives of the national scout organization of Ukraine "Plast" brought the Peace Light of Bethlehem to the zone of the joint forces operation.
"The Peace Light of Bethlehem was transferred to the military units that perform tasks to protect the sovereignty and territorial integrity on the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions," the report said.
Everyone was able to light a lamp or candle and bring fire to their home.
"For the sixth year in a row, the Plast members have brought the Peace Light of Bethlehem to the forefront of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in combat areas and to the front-line cities of Donetsk and Luhansk region. Thus, we want our defenders performing combat missions on the contact line to feel the coming celebration of the Nativity of Christ. The warmth of this fire should warm the hearts and souls of our soldiers in the trenches. We hope that soon the war will end with our victory and we will live in peace," say the organizers of the event.
The Peace Light of Bethlehem is a symbolic fire that the scouts receive at the birthplace of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem and spread around the world. The main idea of the action is the unity of people. Fire overcomes many boundaries and gets to all who are waiting for the light of warmth, peace, harmony.
