On May 30 in the Svyatogorsk Lavra “St. Assumption of the Virgin “killed two monks and a nun. The bombs fell on the third and fourth monastic corps, the UOC reported. The victims are the trustee of the monastery, Archim. Galaktion (Vuychenko), monk Aristocles and nun Barbara. Hieromonks Joasaph and Amphilochius and Hierodeacon Alypius were wounded. The number of dead and wounded lay people is currently unknown.

The Holy Archimandrite or Abbot of the Lavra is the Metropolitan of Donetsk and Mariupol Hilarion. “I pray for your holy prayers for the peace of the victims and the speedy recovery of the wounded,” he said in a succinct statement.

This is another shelling of the third largest monastery in Ukraine since the beginning of the Russian invasion of the country. Until now, bombs had fallen near the monastery and damaged buildings, but there were no casualties among the monks and about 300 refugees.
