Yesterday, on the evening of August 22, Russian occupants launched an attack on the Roman Catholic parish in the town of Skadovsk, located in the Kherson region.

Bishop Stanislav Shyrokoradiuk of the Roman Catholic Church in Ukraine wrote about this incident.

"A contingent of armed specialized forces in masks and wielding weapons encircled the Roman Catholic chapel. With determined force, they breached the chapel's entrance and advanced into the premises, commencing a meticulous search, as underscored by the bishop's account. The occupying forces declared that their actions constituted a deliberate operation designed to counteract terrorist activities.

"Fortunately, there were no people in the chapel at the time, otherwise, they all would have been captured as terrorists," stated Bishop Stanislav. "Access to the chapel is denied to everyone, and the searches are ongoing. Strangely, they also broke windows. I believe they will find whatever they want there: weapons, explosives, you name it. And they've labeled Father Dominik, the parish priest who left for Poland before the war, as the main drug lord, falsely putting him on the wanted list."

"As we can see, the methods of the KGB haven't changed... Therefore, I ask everyone for prayers so that the good Lord may shorten the days of the devil's actions and the days of suffering for our people," emphasized the bishop.
