The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) extends sincere greetings to the Hierarchs and clergy of Ukrainian Churches, the President, Prime Minister, Chair of the Verkhovna Rada and the Armed Forces of Ukraine, leaders of UWC member organizations and Ukrainians throughout the world with the great Holy Day of the Resurrection of Christ!
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the greatest and holiest day for all Ukrainians, symbolizing the victory of life over death and light over darkness, and uniting our people around common Christian values.
Today, the millions-strong Ukrainian diaspora led by the Ukrainian World Congress stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and is making every effort to assist in the defense of the territorial integrity of Ukraine from foreign armed aggression, and for Ukraine to become a fully reformed European state.
On this Holy Day of Christ’s Resurrection the Ukrainian World Congress calls upon the global Ukrainian community to praise the Son of God, and pray for peace in Ukraine and its faithful sons and daughters who today in Eastern Ukraine bravely stand in resistance to a foreign empire.
“May the joy of Christ’s Resurrection safeguard and unite our great Ukrainian family and remain the source of light, courage and faith in the victoryof goodness over evil!,” stated the UWC President Eugene Czolij.
Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen!
