During his speech in parliament on November 23, commemorating the Holodomor of 1932-33, Patriarch of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church Svyatoslav (Shevchuk) reminded that the Greek Catholics were the first to respond to this tragedy.

“It was Andrey Sheptytsky who first spoke about the Holodomor and created the Rescue Committee of Ukrainians,” said the first hierarch.

The head of the UGCC added that the Greek Catholic bishops not only disseminated information about the terrible events in Ukraine, but also tried to help the victims. People responded to this call. Although they themselves were not rich, but they collected a large amount of donations.

“Later representatives of other churches and nations joined our bishops,” said the head of the UGCC.

Patriarch Sviatoslav emphasized that we need to remember these terrible events, and pray for the victims.

“Eternal memory to those who perished! Eternal glory to those who saved at least one Ukrainian soul!” he said.

      Было бы неплохо присоединить к УГКЦ православную церковь, но "пцу" таковой не является. Хотя, согласно католической традиции, считается крещеным человек, даже если этот обряд совершен в

      Пан velovs, но так же нельзя. Что же вы отрицаете очевидное, на белое, говорите черное! Денисенко же сам признался в "ситуативном" обмане турок.
