Bishop Milan (Shashik) of the Diocese of Mukachevo, UGCC, and Bishop Antal Maynek of the diocese of Mukachevo, RCC in Ukraine, appealed to the faithful asking them not to pluck primroses and not buy them from poachers. According to them, tearing the flowers, the people thus are causing irreparable environmental damage.

No wonder the researchers included all kinds of primroses (early spring flowers) in the Red Book as their number reduces annually in nature. These are all types of snowdrop, saffron (crocus), cyclamen, etc.,” they argue.

Catholic bishops say that the vast majority of primroses are sold from hand, are torn and brought to sell in bulk by poachers.

“Flowers are pulled out with bulbs to extend the shell life of bouquets. Recovery of the plants in nature is then impossible. Cutting flowers without bulbs is also harmful because it leads to genetic degeneration of plants,” they underscore.

The hierarchs emphasize that buying the primroses from the Red Book, people promote this kind of evil. Only the refusal from the purchase of these flowers can stop poachers.

“Therefore, it is important for us as conscious Christians to break the circle of destruction. This proposal can be the key one for each of us. So let us ask God in prayer for the gift of wisdom to care for his creatures as our neighbors,” the Catholic Bishops Milan (Shashvk) and Antal Maynek underscore.

    У Бога немає ворогів. Хіба сатана, та й той по своїй злій волі виступив проти Всевишнього. Ворог України - диявол? Цілком і повністю згідна! Саме він за допомогою нещасних рабів, котрі під його

    Війна не перестала бути війною, незалежно від того, визнав її Порошенко чи ні.
