The head of the Ukrainian Uniates, Sviatoslav Shevchuk, told why the people killed on the Maidan should be considered "warriors of light".

The head of the UGCC, Sviatoslav Shevchuk, said that he puts the Ukrainians killed on the Maidan on a par with the angelhood, the official website of the Ukrainian Uniates reports.

According to Shevchuk, “The Day of Dignity and Freedom, which is celebrated in Ukraine on November 21, is a unique holiday,” and “we celebrate it in order to once again believe that good exists and evil has already been defeated.”

“It is not for nothing that we named our heroes of the Maidan the Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred. We put them on a par with the army of light, perennially led by the Archangel Michael,” Shevchuk said live in the Open Church program.

Answering the question of whether the sacrifice of the Heavenly Hundred was not in vain, Sviatoslav recalled that on November 21, on the Day of Dignity and Freedom, the Church honors the memory of the Archangel Michael, who, with his call “Who is like God”, cast down from heaven Lucifer, the angel of evil opposing God . Thus, "it is a celebration of the victory of good over evil."

According to him, “evil never has the last word, it is always defeated by good,” and those killed on the Maidan “are the winners,” because “giving one’s life for a lofty goal, for the good of the homeland, fellow citizens is always an act of the winner.”

Earlier, the UOJ wrote that the head of the UGCC called the Heavenly Hundred a standard of love for one's neighbor.
