Ukraine is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe. It has a population of around 42 million people and an area of around 6,500 square kilometers. The Soviet Union annexed Ukraine in 1940, and the country experienced two decades of totalitarian rule followed by four years of independence. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Ukraine experienced a period of instability and natural disasters that led to civil war in the early 2000s. Since then, Ukraine’s government has been trying to rebuild its economy and build stronger ties with its neighbors. However, tension between Russia and Ukraine remains high, as does support for nationalist groups in both countries. In light of these factors, many Ukrainians are looking for ways to pray for peace in their country.

One way the Catholic Church is helping to promote peace is by offering mass at churches throughout Ukraine.

Prayer for Peace In Ukraine
As the world watches Ukraine struggle with its internal conflict, many people are looking for ways to offer support. One way to do this is through prayer.
The Ukrainian Catholic Church has called for a period of prayer and fasting in order to bring peace to the country. The church also asks for continued prayers for the victims of the violence and their families.
Local churches and religious organizations can join in this effort by holding special prayer services or fasting rallies. Individuals can also pray for peace on their own, either individually or in groups.

Background of the Conflict in Ukraine
The conflict in Ukraine has its roots in the country’s history. The breakup of the Soviet Union led to a power vacuum in Ukraine, which was quickly filled by rival political factions. In 1991, a referendum was held that proposed the independence of Ukraine from the Soviet Union. This referendum resulted in a majority of votes cast in favor of independence, but the referendum was ruled illegal by Moscow and the Soviet Union.
In February 2014, pro-Russian militias took control of Ukrainian military bases in Crimea. The Russian government then announced that it would annex Crimea into the Russian Federation. This move provoked international outcry, and many countries imposed sanctions on Russia.
Ukrainian forces subsequently launched an operation to retake control of Crimea. By early 2017, the Ukrainian forces had regained control of all of Crimea. However, fighting continues in other parts of Ukraine, including Donetsk and Luhansk provinces.
Pope Francis has called for an end to the violence in Ukraine and for all sides to seek reconciliation. He has also urged Ukrainians to unite behind their common values of democracy, justice, and human rights.
