Addressing participants of the event, Oleksandr Turchynov reminded that the tradition of Prayer Breakfasts originates from the USA and “has stricken roots in Ukraine.” “All those who participated in the Prayer Breakfast felt unity that cannot be reached artificially but only when people with different views and standings are united in a prayer to God,” he said.

The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada is convinced that when different leaders and politicians from different countries communicate through prayer “they will no longer be able to look through sights or humiliate each other. They will hear each other, which is extremely important.”

Commenting on the situation in Ukraine, Oleksandr Turchynov noted that the country now lives through the most dramatic days in its history, having faced a challenge on the part of the Russian Federation that initiated aggression in the East of our country. In this context, he cited the Bible saying that “the Babylon will always remain destroyed, since its walls are built on human fear and disbelief.”
