These days, when the war is escalating, when the enemy has intensified its offensive in Ukraine, I call on everyone to pray sympathetically and tirelessly for the Ukrainian army.

The Patriarch of the UGCC said this in his daily address on the 55th day of Russia's war against Ukraine, the UGCC Information Department reports.

The Primate of the UGCC has urged all those in Ukraine and abroad to pray because today, the future and fate of Ukraine and the world are being decided.

"I am grateful to all those who in different parts of the world, from different churches and peoples, will hear together with Ukraine today," the head of the UGCC said.

In his address, His Beatitude Sviatoslav stated that we had seen a sharp increase in the aggressive actions of the invaders over the past day. The President of Ukraine and the military leadership are discussing the beginning of a new offensive by Russian troops, particularly in the east of Ukraine. The fighting escalated. The number of weapons used these days is second to none in the last decades after World War II…

"Ukraine is fighting. Ukraine stands. We can speak to you today thanks to the heroic efforts of the Ukrainian army. It is to our Armed Forces that we owe the fact that we see this morning of God and can send our morning prayers to our Lord and Savior," the Patriarch of the UGCC stressed.
