Ukraine’s church leader comes to support Ukrainian defenders


The head of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, Metropolitan Epifaniy, visited the checkpoints where Ukrainian defenders are on duty.


That’s according to Archbishop Yevstratiy (Zorya) of Chernihiv and Nizhyn, Ukrinform reports.



Today, Metropolitan Epifaniy of Kyiv and All Ukraine met with Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko and Commander of the Land Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine – Commander of the Kyiv Defense, Colonel-General Oleksandr Syrsky.



In addition, the head of the OCU visited the locations and checkpoints where the defenders of Ukraine are on duty, talked to soldiers, wished them resilience and inspiration in protecting the people of Ukraine, and called God’s blessing upon them.


“May God protect each of you – courageous Ukrainian soldiers who are fearlessly resisting the criminal invasion by the Russian aggressor. Our prayer and our support are always with you. The enemy has come to our land, ruthlessly destroying homes, schools, hospitals, killing civilians. Therefore, your mission is selfless and noble, because we stand for the truth, for our people, and for our God-given state – Ukraine. Evil will certainly be defeated and punished,” said Metropolitan Epifaniy.


As Ukrinform reported earlier, saboteurs, whose target could be the head of the OCU, were neutralized in the Mykhailivsky Golden-Domed Monastery in Kyiv.
