In Bucha, prayed a memorial service for the innocent Ukrainians killed by the occupiers over one of the mass graves.

“May the Lord God rest the souls of his innocent slain servants, may he save lives, may he protect Ukraine from those criminals who have come to kill, plunder and destroy. Eternal memory to the innocent victims! “, added the Primate.
