With the blessing of Metropolitan Volodymyr of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate (UOC-MP), on January 28 an aerial religious procession was held with the miraculous Pochayiv, “Look Upon Humility,” Izyum (Pishchansk), and Desyatynna icons of the Virgin Mary as well as with the relics of saints, the official website of the UOC reports.
Before the start, a Liturgy was celebrated in the Desyatynna (Tithe) Monastery.
The plane with the icons flew over Kyiv several times. The further route was in the shape of a cross. From Kyiv the plane flew to Luhansk, from Luhansk to Uzhgorod, from Uzhhorod to Simferopol, and from Simferopol to Kharkiv. From Kharkiv the plane flew back to Kyiv.
