Ukrainian Catholic leader fears neighboring nation may provoke civil war

Catholic World News - February 26, 2014

In an evident reference to Russia, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church has told Vatican Radio that “the danger that one of our neighbors will provoke a civil war has not blown over.”

Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk called for continued “solidarity” from European foreign ministers in the wake of the danger.

“I would like to ask Europeans to wake up because what is happening in Ukraine, sooner or later, will touch all of you, because Ukraine is part of Europe,” the prelate added. “And if people continue to pretend that nothing is happening, not only will things worsen in Eastern Europe, but this will cause great lack of faith in European values in the Western nations.”
