On the initiative of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, Secretariat of the Ukrainian Council of Churches and Religious Organizations (AUCCRU) decided to make June 22 the Day of interdenominational prayer for the victims of two totalitarian regimes - Nazism and communism.
"This date was marked by horrific bloodshed caused by one or the other party. So certainly it is our day of mourning over the Ukrainian land sipped in blood of innocents killed", - explains the head of Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church."June 22 will be day for prayer, remembrance and reconciliation".
The appeal notes that the Ukrainian Council of Churches agreed to the initiative of UGCC to declare June 22 the Day of prayer, as some political forces want to use to divide our people.
