Churches in Ukraine stand up to Russian abuses in Bucha

The Major Archbishop of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, H.B. Sviatoslav Shevchuk accuses Russian forces of committing “horrific war crimes” in cities near Kiev. Comparing Russian abuses to Nazi crimes during World War II, the major archbishop of Kiev says it is important that “the whole world sees and hears” what happened in Bucha, a town where more than 400 bodies were found after the departure of Russian troops. Metropolitan Epiphanius, head of the Independent Orthodox Church of Ukraine, explains that the ideology of the “Russian world”, carried by the Kremlin, must “be rejected and condemned in the same way that Nazism was condemned”. “Are you with God or with the devil?” the Orthodox metropolitan asks, claiming that the Patriarch of Moscow “has already made his choice in favor of the affairs of the antichrist.” “Open your eyes, look at the poisonous fruits of his teachings, stay away from the lawless, do not be his accomplices,” he asks of “those who still have him as their shepherd.”
