Russians Destroy Shrines of Ukraine

Since the beginning of the war, 59 churches in Ukraine have been damaged

The occupiers are destroying two churches and religious buildings every day, according to the Ministry of culture.

Destroyed spiritual buildings are in at least 8 regions of Ukraine: Kyiv, Donetsk, Zhytomyr, Zaporizhia, Luhansk, Sumy, Kharkiv, and Chernihiv. The vast majority of them are Orthodox churches.

In addition, mosques, synagogues, Protestant churches, religious educational institutions, and administrative buildings of religious organizations were also destroyed.

As Russian propagandists cover up their imperial ambitions with "defense of Orthodoxy", an aggressive attack by Russian troops is destroying Orthodox churches and other Ukrainian shrines.

We remind you that on March 13, the Russians blew up the Holy Dormition Svyatogorsk Lavra, where 520 people were hiding from death. The Lavra in Svyatogorsk is one of the three main shrines of Ukraine.
