This war is being waged today in order to finally "resolve" the Ukrainian issue. I urge the whole world: don't take your eyes off Ukraine! Because her wounds can heal you from the illusions of your comfort zone, from your indifference, from the lack of landmarks in your countries and societies. This was stated by the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, His Beatitude Sviatoslav, in his daily military address on the 41st day of the war.

These days, Ukraine is experiencing its Calvary, its crucifixion. "I ask Christians worldwide and all people of good will," he urged, "not to turn away from the suffering, humiliation, death and wounds of Ukraine," His Beatitude Sviatoslav said.

Terrible footage of war crimes in the cities and villages of Ukraine appears before the eyes of the whole world. Just a few dozen kilometers from the center of Kyiv, we see hundreds of bodies shot in the back of the head. We see the wounds of the Ukrainian people.

"When we ask why this happened, why these innocent people were tortured and then executed, then, as the witnesses of these horrors say, only because they were Ukrainians because they spoke the Ukrainian language. Everyone was asked about their profession. If someone was a teacher, they were immediately killed because they taught in Ukrainian and educated Ukrainians. An athlete would be killed for contributing to Ukrainian sports. An artist or director died because he cherished Ukrainian culture," the spiritual leader said.

"We see that this war between Russia and Ukraine has a clear ideological basis – this has been said in recent days at the highest levels of the Russian government. This war denies the existence of a multi-million-strong Ukrainian people," His Beatitude Sviatoslav believes.

Patriarch Sviatoslav calls on the whole world to pay attention to crimes against Ukraine worthy of an international tribunal because such actions are taking place today throughout Ukraine: in Rubizhne and Popasna in the Donbas, in Mariupol in the Ukrainian South.

"We say to the conscience of a modern person: we will do everything to stop the new murderous ideology that is bearing fruit on the lands of Ukraine and which, perhaps, is worse than Nazism. This ideology will still be waiting for its Nuremberg process," the head of the UGCC stressed.
