The Head of the UGCC discussed with the Spanish ambassador to Ukraine the Russian manifesto of the genocide of the Ukrainian people
His Beatitude Sviatoslav thanked the Ambassador for returning to Kyiv with the diplomats. He stressed that this is a sign of great support for Ukraine and at the same time the evidence that European countries believe in Ukraine's victory.
In the conversation, the parties touched upon various aspects of the Church's activities during the war and discussed the humanitarian aspect. The Head of the UGCC spoke about the challenges of social service, particularly sharing his experience of the last trip to the south of Ukraine.
They also brought up a question of ideological war, which, according to the Primate, is the cause and therefore sets certain goals for Russian aggression in Ukraine.
The participants of the conversation discussed the manifesto of the genocide of the Ukrainian people, which the Russians issued as an instruction for their troops in Ukraine. This instruction states that Ukrainians are not people but an ideology that must be punished and eradicated. Insubordinate people need to be "re-educated" in special camps. Moreover, it is about the extermination of millions of people in Ukraine as one of the goals of the war.
His Beatitude Sviatoslav asked the international community to pay attention to this because this type of totalitarian ideology and its calls for the genocide must be understood and condemned by the world community.
The Ambassador, for her part, assured the Head of the UGCC of Spain's constant attention to the war in Ukraine, its support for humanitarian service, and its readiness for further dialogue and cooperation.
