“I am deeply shocked and my thoughts and prayers are directed to our Ukrainian brothers, especially to the young children and the elderly who are experiencing the horrors of war, and of course to the thousands of our compatriots in the country.
In fact, I have to tell you that I was shocked as a person and as a clergyman, seeing the image of a small child who with tears in his eyes says that he does not want to die and that he wants this war to end as soon as possible, but also the image of a father who with tears in his eyes he says goodbye to his daughter and his wife who are leaving in search of a safe haven.
So I hope and pray that this war will end now, that prudence and logic will prevail and that it will be understood that all issues can be settled and resolved through dialogue and conciliation and never by force.”
