Metropolitan Athenagoras of Belgium expressed his sorrow and support for the millions of innocent Ukrainian citizens who are experiencing this terrible war.

“What is happening in Ukraine fills us with deep sorrow. This war is hurting millions of innocent people. That is why the hostilities must stop immediately and President Vladimir Putin must end the military operations,” the Metropolitan of Belgium said and continued, “let us join our prayers for common sense to prevail, for the fury of war to stop, and for those responsible to find the path of respect and tolerance. We extend our hands and open our hearts to all our brothers and sisters who are immersed in pain and suffering.”

Read below the message of Metropolitan Athenagoras of Belgium:

“What is happening in Ukraine fills us with deep sorrow. This war is hurting millions of innocent people. That is why the hostilities must cease immediately and President Vladimir Putin must end the military operations. It is necessary to restore peace through negotiations because as Orthodox Christians we condemn violence and war. Besides, the war between Christians is a fratricidal war.

Most of the older ones know about the war in Europe from the narratives of our parents and grandparents, from the history described in books and films. Attacking a peaceful and sovereign nation is a sad reminder that the work for peace never stops.

The Holy Metropolis of Belgium cannot remain silent. Let us join our prayers for common sense to prevail, for the fury of war to stop, and for those responsible to find the path of respect and tolerance. We extend our hands and open our hearts to all our brothers and sisters who are immersed in pain and suffering.”
