The UGCC leader, His Beatitude Sviatoslav, appealed to all Christians to pray for the spiritual sanctuary of the Slavic peoples and called on the Russian occupiers to refrain from this horrific act of vandalism.

"May St. Sophia, the Wisdom of God, bring to their senses those who have planned to commit this crime," said His Beatitude Sviatoslav.
