CWN Editor's Note: Since 2014, over 10,000 people have been killed in the War in Donbass; 1.4 million Ukrainians have been internally displaced, and 925,000 have left the country. “Russia has its own interests, the rich countries of the West have their own interests,” said Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. “We cannot, in those negotiations, abandon our desire to be a free, independent state that has chosen its path of development.”
