Oleksandr Turchynov: The main protection of Ukrainians is not weapons, but the ability to hear each other
Today, the Parliament held a Prayer Breakfast under the auspices of the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov with representatives of churches, religious and public organizations of Ukraine, as well as foreign guests, diplomatic missions and the people’s deputies of Ukraine.
Addressing participants of the event, Oleksandr Turchynov said that the tradition of Prayer Breakfasts began its journey in the United States and “has sprouted good roots in Ukraine.” “Everyone who took part in the Prayer Breakfast felt commonality and unity which cannot be achieved artificially but only when people with different views and positions are united in a prayer to God,” he said.
The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada is convinced that when different leaders and politicians from different countries communicate together in prayer “they won’t be able to look through a scope or humiliate each other, but they will hear each other, which is extremely important.”
