In Lublin, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko took part in the ceremony of laying a memorial capsule for the construction of the monument to the Righteous of Ukraine, Blessed Holy Martyr Father Omelyan Kovch.


The Head of State that the City Council of Lublin had made a decision on the monument on February 22, 2018. "This is a unique gesture that shows affinity, mutual respect, high moral and Christian values that has been uniting the Ukrainian and Polish people for centuries," Petro Poroshenko emphasized.

The President thanked everyone who made efforts for this step, particularly the City Council of Lublin, in the person of its Chairman, Mr. Jarosław Pakuła.

"Dear friends, together we make a fantastic, wonderful job. Father Omelyan Kovch unites Ukrainian, Polish, Jewish and other nations. He is an example of profound spirituality and self-sacrifice. He showed a model of true love for one’s neighbor. The love that the Lord teaches us," the Head of State emphasized.

"With his humane stance, carrying pastoral service to people in need, Father Omelyan Kovch constantly challenged two criminal ideologies that left a tragic footprint in the XX century. Soviet communism and German Nazism destroyed and crushed the cultural and civilizational space of Europe," the President said.

"And now, when Europe is united, when Ukraine aspires to return to the European family of nations and pays the greatest price of all nations for the right to be in Europe, look how necessary the words of Omelyan Kovch are. The words that unite us," Petro Poroshenko said.

He informed that he had returned from the meeting with the Presidents of Poland and Lithuania. “We have just noted the unity of the Lithuanian–Polish–Ukrainian Brigade. I think that Father Omelyan would be glad to see the unity of Europe, the unity of three our nations,” Petro Poroshenko said. He added: “Let us preserve our friendship, let us preserve our unity, let us preserve our European values that unity our nations and let us remember the words of Blessed Father Omelyan Kovch that will be inscribed on the future monument here in Lublin: “One and the same Great and Almighty God leads us all”.
