Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine condemned the act of vandalism, committed on the night of August 17-18, 2018 in Bila Tserkva. A group of intruders knocked down a concrete fence at the construction site of the Nativity Church, the first church of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in the city. An official comment by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on this issue was published on the Ministry's official site.

“Condemning these unlawful actions that compromise the international authority of our State, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry expresses its protest and strongly opposes similar manifestations of incitement to inter-religious hatred. Obviously, the purpose of this unlawful action is to sow fear and uncertainty not only among the Greek Catholics, but also among the faithful of other denominations.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine considers this insidious attack to be an attack on the freedom of conscience and religion of all citizens.

We are convinced that Ukrainian law enforcement agencies will give proper assessment to this disgraceful act and take all necessary measures to bring the organizers and perpetrators of the crime to responsibility,” the Foreign Ministry claims.

    Although the State has a role to play in condemning and prosecuting vandals wherever they may be, the leaders of every religious denomination should be especially and equally vocal in denouncing those who would deliberately damage the property of any religious group. Why? Because everyone should consider the ages old phrase "do unto others as you would have them to unto you". Aside from that, since when has any religion used hatred as the cornerstone of their faith? Never.

    Это кощунство!!! Нравится кому-то или не нравится, но УГКЦ настоящая, каноническая и общепризнанна во всем мире, как и Святая Римская Церковь. Совершать подобное - тяжкий грех! Нельзя прикасаться к Божьим Храмам!

    А МИД ничего не перепутал ? С какого перепугу он так опекается о УГКЦ, может ему известно с каких стран финансируются подобные проекты по строительству сооружений для УГКЦ и такое чувство неудобства.

    Is the ROC referring to their persecution of all other churches in Eastern UIkraine and in Russia? That's the only persecution that I am aware of.

    Как бесконечно мудр Святейший Отец наш Папа. Какие простые, казалось бы, слова, а сколько смысла! Строить мосты, а не стены! То есть мост всегда что-то соединяет, а стена всегда отделяет. Как просто,

    Навряд чи католикам буде приємне вітання, від якого смердить русскім міром.

    Во- первых, поздравляю Вас с Пасхой, которую сегодня отмечают все 1,5 миллиарда католиков мира! Во-вторых, мне безразличен Кирилл, если есть основания, пусть его судят и низлагают.
