"May God protect each of you – courageous Ukrainian soldiers who are fearlessly resisting the criminal invasion by the Russian aggressor. Our prayer and our support are always with you. The enemy has come to our land, ruthlessly destroying homes, schools, hospitals, killing civilians. Therefore, your mission is selfless and noble, because we stand for the truth, for our people, and for our God-given state – Ukraine. Evil will certainly be defeated and punished," said Metropolitan Epifaniy.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, saboteurs, whose target could be the head of the OCU, were neutralized in the Mykhailivsky Golden-Domed Monastery in Kyiv.
