Ukrainian cardinal decries Russia’s ‘imperial ambitions’

July 15, 2016

The retired head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church has criticized Russian expansionism, according to a report from the Religious Information Service of Ukraine.

“I am looking at the history,” said Cardinal Lubomyr Husar, 83, who led the largest of the Eastern Catholic churches from 2001 to 2011. “There were Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, the Soviet system. This system is still alive.”

“Look further into the past. Russia was never quiet,” he continued. “This is too bad, because the war will be an unhappy solution for Russian people. Imperial ambitions will not bring this country anything.”
