CWN Editor's Note: “When we look today at what the enemy leaves behind – burned and destroyed cities and villages, burnt fields of wheat, plundered forests, mined chernozems, polluted ponds, rivers, and water sources from which you can no longer drink – we see that war is not only a crime against human life, but also a crime against God’s creation,” said Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.

The prelate made his remarks as his church prepared to celebrate the Day of God the Creator on September 14.
