The Head of the UGCC sharply criticizes Russia for the rocket attack on the South Ukrainian NPP
We see that Russia is resorting to nuclear blackmail of Ukraine and the world. And it's a miracle that another atomic disaster didn't happen tonight. This was stated by the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, His Beatitude Sviatoslav, in his daily military address on the 208th day of Russia's war against Ukraine.
"I call on all people of good will: let us do everything in our power together to prevent another Chornobyl, but on a much larger scale!" Said the head of the UGCC.
The primate noted that heavy fighting has been going on along the entire front line over the past day. From Kharkiv region in the north of our homeland to Zaporizhia, Kherson region in the South. The enemy is again systematically and tirelessly shelling our peaceful cities and villages. At least 8 missile strikes, and about 20 airstrikes were carried out, and how many strikes were inflicted by various kinds of artillery and rocket shells can not even be counted.
"But most of all, we are now hurt by the fact that our city of Zaporizhia was hit twice by a missile strike. At least 8 missile strikes were reported," the Head of the UGCC said.
His Beatitude Sviatoslav drew attention to another disturbing fact: Russia is sending convicted criminals to Ukraine to fight. About 400 prisoners who were convicted of serious crimes from the city of Tambov with weapons in their hands were sent to Ukraine - apparently to kill civilians.
