From the World Council of Churches 

A World Council of Churches (WCC) delegation led by general secretary Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit will visit Ukraine from 17 to 20 March to explore how the international ecumenical community may best support churches there so that they can contribute to the search for peace in this country.

“We hope that this visit can be seen as an expression of how the whole ecumenical family prays and acts together for justice and peace for the people of Ukraine,” said Tveit. “We go together to see, to listen and to discern what our future steps together can be,” he added.

The programme of the delegation visit includes meetings and discussions with the leadership of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate) which is the WCC member church in Ukraine, as well as with other churches and religious communities in Ukraine, and encounters with high-ranking Ukrainian political leaders.
