Archbishop Bernardito Auza spoke of the “grave concern” caused by escalating violence in Ukraine, and called upon all parties to observe human rights and to work toward a stable peace agreement. The archbishop noted that the cause of peace could be helped “not least by respecting international legality with regard to Ukraine’s territory and borders.”
