Russia’s spiritual leader Patriarch Kirill on Thursday called for a cease-fire in Ukraine on Orthodox Christmas, celebrated this week by both countries.
“I, Kirill, Patriarch of Moscow and of all Rus, appeal to all parties involved in the internecine conflict with a call to cease fire and establish a Christmas truce from 12:00 on January 6 to 00:00 on January 7 so that Orthodox people can attend services on Christmas Eve and on the day of the Nativity of Christ,” he said on the church’s official website.
