“We are called to peace, justice, and the preservation of unity,” the Chair of the Evangelical Baptist Union of Ukraine Vyacheslav Nesteruk said today in a statement. In the statement, he notes that the Evangelical Baptist Union of Ukraine is “troubled by the recent developments and joins the will of the people, constantly praying for a peaceful resolution of this conflict.” 

The Evangelical Baptist Union of Ukraine calls on every Christian not to be indifferent to today's conflicts and intensify their prayers for an end to hatred and violence.

“Regardless of the diverse views on political battles, we ask you, brothers and sisters, to join the active thoughts of those citizens who are trying to prevent the destruction of the relations between the government and the people. Remember, a heart that cares for his people, does not stand apart from its problems, is able to love and conquer this aggression, hatred, and arbitrary behavior with love. We will be careful not to cross the boundary, where anger and hostility replace the principles of the gospel,” reads the statement.

The Evangelical Baptist Union of Ukraine calls on the representatives of the state to stop a violent intervention, to not prohibit Ukrainians from peacefully expressing their will, and not to use brutal violence during massive public events.
