Ukrainian prelates denounce misinformation campaign

Catholic World News - June 19, 2014

In an apparent response to strong criticisms of Ukraine’s Eastern Catholics by a leading Russian Orthodox official, the permanent Synod of Bishops of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church has denounced a “campaign … from certain political and spiritual authorities of the highest level, who share an aggressive tone and the technique of misrepresentation.”

“We are very grateful for your efforts to inform your communities about the real nature of changes which are taking place in our country, in contrast to the skewed information which is directed against Ukraine and its churches, especially against the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church,” the synod said in a letter to Catholic episcopal conferences and others around the world.
