The chief bishop of the Anglican Church arrived in Ukraine to support its people.

Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, Chief Bishop of the Anglican Church, arrived in Ukraine on November 30, 2022. It is reported by The Guardian.

The archbishop traveled to Kyiv by train to show "solidarity in the face of what he called Russia's illegal, unjust and brutal invasion" and became the first Church of England leader since World War I to visit a war zone in Europe.

Welby himself said he wanted to support the people who probably feel incredibly isolated and said he was afraid of a humanitarian catastrophe.

“This visit is meant to show solidarity with them as they face the toughest winter,” added the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Earlier, the UOJ reported that Dumenko blessed the head of the Anglican Church at a service in London.
