Metropolitan Hilarion Metropolitan of Eastern America and New York,
First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad issued the call for peace and calm in Ukraine.

"As faithful children of the Russian Orthodox Church, we cannot remain indifferent to the troubles plaguing Her cradle – the Mother of Russian Cities, Kiev. We call on all of the faithful of the Russian Church Abroad around the world to pray for the cessation of all violence, that God might prevent all bloodshed and speedily restore brotherly love and understanding."

Metropolitan decreed that all parishes and monasteries of the Eastern American Diocese add the following petition to all augmented litanies at Vespers, Matins, and the Divine Liturgy:"Again we pray Thee, O Almighty Lord, that Thou mightest grant peace to Kiev, the Mother of Russian cities which is shaken by civil strife, and the entire country of Kievan Rus’, and by the power of the grace of Thy Holy Spirit extinguish all enmity and violence therein; O Source of goodness and Abyss of love for mankind, quickly hearken and have mercy."

    Дякуємо всім, хто долучився! За перший день зібрали трохи більше трьох тисяч - а це вже чимало з одягу та взуття! кожна гривня - це допомога.

    The socalled Holy Russian Orthodox Church is led by dishonest men. Its true name should be The Wholly Corrupt Russian Orthodox Church!
