Since the beginning of the war 59 churches have already suffered in Ukraine. The invaders destroy two spiritual buildings every day, reports the Ministry of Culture.
There are destroyed spiritual structures in at least 8 regions of Ukraine: Kyiv, Donetsk, Zhytomyr, Zaporizhya, Luhansk, Sumy, Kharkiv, and Chernihiv. The vast majority of them are Orthodox churches.
In addition, mosques, synagogues, protestant churches, religious educational institutions, and administrative buildings of religious organizations have also been destroyed.
While the Kremlin’s propagandists cynically cover their own imperial ambitions with “protection of Orthodoxy,” the aggressive attack by Russian troops is undermining Orthodox churches and other shrines of Ukraine.
