On May 5, US President Joe Biden congratulated Eastern Rite Orthodox Christians on Easter and emphasized that on this day "we remember with special love the people who suffer from war and persecution."

"We will continue to pray and work for peace and justice for all people," the White House said in a statement.

On that day, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted that in the most difficult period of Ukraine's modern history, our people are learning the true meaning of the biblical commandments and clearly understanding who is who in the modern world. He emphasized that Ukrainians are now waging a just war, defending their right to exist, and God is definitely on the side of those who are right - on the side of the Defense Forces.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, on the eve of Easter, May 4, Russian invaders shelled Ukrainian cities and villages in ten regions of our country throughout the day. In total, 113 settlements and 110 infrastructure facilities came under enemy fire.
