WEBINAR | Ukraine's Faith Communities
in the Path of Destruction

4:30 pm ET, Thursday, March 17

Join us for an important discussion on Ukraine’s diverse faith communities and the sacred historic sites imperiled as Russian President Vladimir Putin carves a path of destruction through this ancient land.

“Many of Ukraine’s historic faith communities and their churches have stood for centuries. They survived the German Nazis and Soviet Communists—will they now survive Putin?” asks Dede Laugesen, executive director of Save the Persecuted Christians. “Those Ukrainian religious leaders who in recent years have split from the Russian Orthodox Church are certain to be targeted by advancing troops—their punishment will almost certainly be death. We’ve already heard that Russian forces shot and killed a priest in a village outside of Kyiv on the last day of February. And, the endlessly tormented and fragile community of Ukrainian Jews—many of them elderly—simply may not survive this latest onslaught.”


On Thursday, March 17 at 4:30 pm ET, Save the Persecuted Christians will host a panel of experts to examine what is at risk for people of faith in Ukraine and what Putin may do to them if Russia should triumph.
