“The Ministry will always promote such dialogues because, first of all, we are talking about peace in Ukraine <...>. The interreligious dialogue will always be a priority for the state that thinks about harmony and peace in its country. Therefore, it’s important for us to hold such platforms,” the online outlet “Ukrinform” cites Koliada’s words.
