Ukraine’s President-elect Vladimir Zelensky shared a video message of the religious leaders of the country
So, on his page on Facebook Zelensky has published a video in which the Patriarch of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, the head of the UOC of the Moscow Patriarchate, the chief rabbis of the country, mufti (Muslim spiritual leaders in Ukraine) and the head of the Greek Catholic Church was United, forgetting their differences for the sake of the world. However, the video was not of Metropolitan Epiphanios, whom, as previously reported, there was a conflict with Patriarch Filaret.
“The result of meetings with religious leaders was a message of peace for the inhabitants of Crimea and Donbass. Thanks to all who agreed. We are with you! We are together! We are one country!” — wrote Zelensky under the video.
On the record spiritual leaders wish the Ukrainians of the world and urged to solve the main problem of the country – the war through dialogue, wisdom and forgiveness, not weapons. Representatives of the most popular religions in the country also noted that continuously pray for peace. In a touching appeal was involved, even the Jewish rabbis, who struggle to speak Ukrainian or even in Russian, insisting that they are residents of Ukraine and they are not indifferent to the fate of the country.
“We pray for peace. And the world can be only when there is truth and there is justice. Pray for a just peace for all of us,” he said in the video, the representative of the Greek Catholic Church of Ukraine. In the comments under the video, many Ukrainians supported the words of spiritual teachers, however, some noticed that representatives of many religions have ignored the video. However, the Ukrainians also began to resent that Zelensky duplicate their publication in Russian language:
“For the first time in 5 years, saw step stitching of Ukraine, and not its division! Thank you!!!! Great start!!!”, “I read some comments, and so feel ashamed for you people!! Will not have a good life and a hundred Zelensky will not help you. No respect to each other, changes in state need to start with yourself. Why procrastinate topic with the Russian language? The Ukrainian government, that’s fine, that’s right, the house on the street, even the Chinese, but to insult because people speak Russian it is not correct”
“Where Protestant leader?) Baptist, or Pentecostal or Messianic Jew?) all of Europe and America rose up economically with Protestantism. Including trump and his entourage-the Protestants! They pray before the adoption of laws and read together in Parliament the Bible,” wrote under the video, some users of the social network.
