In his speech to the Parade on the occasion of the 26th anniversary of the Independence of Ukraine, President Petro Poroshenko cited the words of Archbishop Lubomyr Husar of the UGCC.

In particular, Poroshenko recalled one of the instructions of the ex-head of the UGCC on how Ukrainians should treat their state.

“Cardinal Lubomir Husar called to hold Ukraine in respect in accordance with the commandment of God to respect father and mother” said the President.

“Ukraine is, according to His Beatitude, in a broad sense, a national family, we have no other one. You must tell yourself you were born Ukrainians, it was God’s will, and I have a duty to care for my people,” he added.

As the President of Ukraine has noted, this is a direction not only for the authorities, but for the whole society.

“His Beatitude also emphasized: It depend on us, on every one of us what our native Ukraine would be like. Ukraine will be the one we create .... All of us, we are on the service of truth, goodness and beauty.” said Petro Poroshenko.

Today, a few hours before the Parade, members of the All-Ukrainian Council of Churches and Religious Organizations together with representatives of the government took part in the Prayer for Ukraine at St. Sophia Cathedral in Kyiv.
