"We and our community is in shock", - bishop Borys Gudziak on situation in Kyiv

Bishop Borys Gudziak was interviewed on hromadske.tv on evening 20 February.

"We and our community is in shock, as is the whole country. I want to express my sympathies to the families of those who have died today. This is the flowering of our nation. I visited the wounded in the hospital. These are pure people, who have no evil intentions, who were ready to give everything they had today, so that we might live different lives. 

"When we sat here together on Monday, we could not imagine what would happen to day. We spoke of the need for sacrifice, but I don't think we imagined it would come so soon. Sacrifice and martyrdom brings fruit. This does not justify the actions of the government today, nor the behaviour of the titushkos [hired thugs], our police or the Berkut [special forces unit]. 

"But sacrifice, witness, and martyrdom changes people, it changes the world. It is difficult for me to express my thoughts today. We are all scattered today, but I think we are inspired by the purity of this sacrifice..."
