On the eve of the Holy Resurrection of Christ, His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphry appealed to everyone on whom the course of the armed confrontation in the East of Ukraine depends, with a request to restore the ceasefire and called for the release of the hostages, according to the Information and Education Department of the UOC.
“I would like to address these holy days to those people who have influence on the armed confrontation in the East of our state, Ukraine, in the Donbass,” the Primate said. “For Christ’s sake, stop shooting, at least on Easter days!”
His Beatitude also called for the freedom of all the captives, so that “they could meet this great bright day of Easter in their families.”
“May the Lord help us all!”
