The Holy Fire delivered to Ukraine

On Easter night, May 5, the Holy Fire was brought to Ukraine from Jerusalem. The first to meet it were chaplains and employees of the State Border Guard Service on the Ukrainian-Moldovan border.

This was reported by the State Border Guard Service. They showed a photo and congratulated Ukrainians on Orthodox Easter.

It is noted that late at night, at the Starokozache checkpoint on the border with Moldova, the fire from Jerusalem delivered by the scouts was met by chaplains and border guards of the Southern Regional Directorate. The Holy Fire was then transported across Ukraine.

We would like to add that the removal of the Holy Fire symbolizes the coming out of the Tomb of the true Light, that is, the Resurrection of the Lord. On the Great Saturday before Easter, May 4, the annual solemn ceremony of the descent of the Holy Fire was held in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.

He urged to remember our soldiers on the front line, veterans who lost their health in the fight against the aggressor, and the fallen Heroes, thanks to whom we continue to live in an independent Ukraine.
