Dear reader,

Reading official church statements about the events in Ukraine, one comes under the impression that they are addressed to the international or church public or to political circles, rather than to the suffering people of Ukraine. Against this backdrop, Metropolitan Mark's address stands out in that it will go down in history as a Christian voice of someone who is not afraid to call things by their name. Thank you, Vladyko Sviatyi.

Thank you for your continuing interest,

Protodeacon Andrei Psarev, Director

Обращение митрополита Марка в связи с ситуацией на Украине

В своем обращении к клиру и пастве епархии Митрополит Марк, Первый заместитель Председателя Архиерейского Синода РПЦЗ выразил четкую христианскую позицию - что происходящее на Украине является братоубийством и что вопросы нужно разрешать через переговоры, а не военные действия.

Regarding the Situation in Ukraine

In this address to the clergy and flock of his diocese, Metropolitan Mark, the First Deputy President of the ROCOR Synod of Bishops, expressed the clear Christian stance that what is happening in Ukraine is fratricide and military action should yield to negotiations.
