War in Ukraine - World Council of Churches vs. Moscow - Politics


The World Council of Churches has declared the Russian war against the Ukraine condemned in no uncertain terms. The "illegal" and "unjustified" war must be ended immediately and the Russian troops must withdraw, according to a resolution passed at the end of the general assembly in Karlsruhe on Thursday. According to its head, Metropolitan Antony, the delegation of the Russian Orthodox Church did not approve the document because it was "largely politicized". The European states are called on to stop the "growing militarization, confrontation and arms deliveries" and invest in civilian peacekeeping instead.
