On Saturday, August 16, it became known that the premises of the monastery of All Saints of Ukrainian people of the Congregation of the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate in Donetsk was captured by the Pro-Russian mercenaries. Provincial Superior in Ukraine Sister Boniface Dyakiv informed the Information Department of the UGCC. The terrorists settled their people there.

"The sisters were not in the monastery. At the request Exarch of Donetsk Bishop Stefan (Meniok) they left Donetsk in July for safety reasons. Before the conflict three nuns worked in Donetsk," says Sister Boniface. According to her, personal belongings of nuns, church attributes, and a car were kept in the house.

It should be added that this year marks the 15th anniversary of the Sisters Servants on the territory of Donetsk and Kharkiv Exarchate of the UGCC. The sisters who left Donetsk continue their ministry in Western Ukraine.
