On September 21, 2020, the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the International Day of Peace, the International Forum “People of Peace” took place in the Holy Dormition Svyatogorsk Lavra. This was reported by the Information and Education Department of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. The decision to continue the peacekeeping initiatives of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church to end the armed conflict in Donbas and in this regard to hold the forum “People of Peace” was made by the Holy Synod of the UOC on August 17 . The initiative was supported by representatives of civil society – residents of Donbass and other regions of Ukraine who are not politicians and do not represent political institutions. As His Beatitude Metropolitan of Kyiv and All Ukraine Onufriy emphasized, the idea of the Forum is to include in the negotiation process in Donbass ordinary people who were directly affected by the war in eastern Ukraine. . . Metropolitan Arseniy of Svyatogorsk thanked Metropolitan Anthony for the joint service, drawing attention to the mission entrusted to the Head of the UOC Affairs with the blessing of His Beatitude Metropolitan Onufriy. “Blessed are the peacemakers,” says the Lord. We dare to take on the title of peacemaker, so as not to renounce the great title of sons of God. Bishop Anthony came to support from the Council of Bishops of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, which from the first days of trouble was the mother of the people, when it received refugees, sent humanitarian aid, sent money, clothes – everything that refugees in our Lavra needed. Our Church was, is and will be a mother.” Bishop Arseniy also stressed that the Church, according to modern sociology, is trusted by more than 76% of the population of Ukraine.  . . . His Beatitude Metropolitan Onufriy named the main purpose of the event.
“The purpose of our communication today is, on the one hand, to show the common people and their suffering, and, on the other, to show a strong desire for peace.”
His Beatitude also proposed a number of principles on which to build a cause of harmony and reconciliation. The first step towards peace, he said, should be to establish human communication between the two sides of the conflict. Next – identifying the common, what unites, not divides, and focusing on it. The end of the peace process should be mutual forgiveness. . . Bishop Anthony shared his experience of meeting with children-migrants in the Svyatogorsk Lavra: “Many of them grew up in the Lavra, some were even born here. Many of them do not know the comfort of home. Yes, the Church has sheltered people, but we understand how important the role of our father’s house, the warmth of our father and mother, plays in our lives. And when children distinguish, unfortunately, which bullet whistles from which weapon, it’s very scary. That is why the most important thing for us is to do everything so that their future is peaceful, so that they no longer know the experiences that are in their lives. ” The hierarch also expressed hope that the voice of the Church, as the voice of the people, will be listened to by those on whom peace in Donbass especially depends. “We would very much like politicians to listen to the voice of the Church,” said the UOC Affairs Manager. – The voice of the Church is the voice of the people. It is possible that we have approached the principle of gathering without politicians, although we understand that this issue cannot be resolved without politicians. ”

DONBASS

Every year on September 21, the public celebrates the International Day of Peace. Ukraine has long celebrated such holidays and the fact is that on this day it is forbidden to shoot. So, even this early morning from the side of the armed formations of Ukraine, a sniper shot was fired towards the village. Unfortunately, the situation along the contact line continues to escalate. The Minsk protocols, the “Normandy format”, the disengagement of forces and equipment – all these are just fine words. Convenient rhetoric for politicians, for which innocent residents of settlements along the contact line pay with their lives and health. Thus, Ukraine once again shows its unwillingness to resolve the military conflict in Donbass peacefully, it will do everything in order to destroy the infrastructure of Donbass as much as possible. The crimes of the Ukrainian military against civilians have no statute of limitations. When the UN Secretary General strikes the Peace Bell, think about the future of Ukraine and the need to moderate fervor, hide your ambitions and maximalism, and think about the main need and right of every person – the right to peace.
