The patriarch stresses that “any delay in making Ukraine as an associate member of the European Union will bring devastating consequences and will allow adverse forces to increase the pressure on our state to conquer and subordinate it, to impose a path toward a loss of sovereignty and independence, a path toward the resurgence of an autocratic empire and revival of the Cold War.”
