Head of the All-Ukrainian Union of Churches of Evangelical Christian Baptists to Christians of Russia
The Chairman of the All-Ukrainian Union of Churches of Evangelical Christian Baptists, Valeriy Antonyuk, appealed to Russian churches and ministers and urged them not to support the brutality of their government. This is reported by Slovo Pro Slovo. "8 months after the start of a full-scale war, the devil showed you his grin. He smiles satanically at churches and those who have decided that silence is the way out. He started bullying, directing another blow to the Church in Russia. Its goal is to completely subdue the ministers of Churches and make their slaves those who bear the name of Christ," said the head of the All-Ukrainian Union of Churches of Evangelical Christian Baptists.
Valery Antonyuk recalled the crimes of the Russian army and called on the churches not to support or justify what their authorities are doing now on Ukrainian lands. In particular, he stressed: “Christians of Russia, we urge you not to multiply the lawlessness of your government, which sends you to kill in the name of Caesar.” He also remembered those who did not bow down to the godless authority, thanking them and consoling them that they would surely win because the Lord is on the side of the light.
