Chair’s Easter address

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine congratulates the faithful on the Radiant Resurrection of Christ

Dear fellow Ukrainians!

I sincerely congratulate you on the brightest holiday of the Jesus’ Resurrection!

Let the light of Easter always give inspiration in all your endeavours, bring you clarity and strength of spirit, joy of life, and family affection.

I would like to send my warmest wishes to all those celebrating Easter. For Christians across the country and the globe, it is a time to gather with family and friends to reflect on the values of compassion and kindness. Easter is also a good opportunity to recognize the fantastic contributions that Churches and faith groups make in our communities every day.

Christ's Resurrection is a great life-affirming holiday of the victory of goodness and love.  In the Easter prayer we ask God to protect all Ukrainian soldiers.

As the Son of God, by the Resurrection, He overcame the darkness of nothingness, and so we shall overcome the outland evil, and release our native lands.

The Lord is Risen!  Truly, He is Risen!
