Ukrainian prelate fears Russian incursions into other nations

April 29, 2014

The Ukrainian Catholic archbishop of Philadelphia fears that a passive Western response to Russian actions in Ukraine will permit incursions into other nations, according to a report from the local CBS affiliate.

“In effect, we’re setting up a new [Berlin] wall,” said Archbishop Stefan Soroka. “Maybe it won’t be the cement-brick wall to be broken down but it would be a wall of political and economic intimidation.”

    This is exactly what is going on I have an acquaintance from Eastern Europe whose father was a member of the Communist Party just before a revolution in that county. This individual states that Russia has given the order to all "dormant" Communist parties throughout Eastern Europe to become "active" once again. I would have to presume that there are both political and military aspects to this order. It would appear that the Church would be a primary target once again.
