"I ask your prayers to the Svyatogorsk saints, that the Lord will finally admonish all those madmen who have done what does not fit in the mind, all that happened today in our Donbass... May God grant peace, and may Our Lady wipe away all tears," said Vladyka Hilarion.
All those present at the solemn service at the Svyatogorsk Lavra, the clergy, monks and laity, listened to the words of the archpastor, holding their breath and not being embarrassed by tears.
