CWN Editor's Note: Russian soldiers ransacked and looted the seminary of the Latin-rite Diocese of Kyiv-Zhytomyr, according to Aid to the Church in Need, which is raising funds for the seminary’s restoration.

“They took everything they could: kitchen utensils, washing machines, computers, and air conditioners,” said Father Ruslan Mykhalkiv, the seminary’s rector. “The seminarians’ rooms were ransacked, and they took liturgical items, including a chalice donated by St. John Paul II when he visited Ukraine in 2001.”
