"Merry Christmas! I sincerely congratulate all Ukrainians with the great church and a deep family holiday - Christmas!
At the festive table I offer in the first place to pray for the Warriors, who protect us these days from the enemy-Antichrist. And let the newborn Savior Jesus Christ will give them the strength to take care of their earthly lives. And keep all our country, Lord, from all evil.
Christ is born!
We Praise Him!" president said in his congratulation.
Today the Eastern Rite Orthodox celebrate Christmas Eve. Christmas prayers take place in cathedrals and churches already.
