Vatican promotes Catholicism in Ukraine

Sales in Ukraine appeared calendars, Christmas cards and drawings on boxes of sweets, preaching Catholicism. The trade network "Silpo" is engaged in the implementation of such printed products.

Orthodoxy is increasingly being pushed out by Kyiv and the Vatican, and in the coming year, Orthodox Christmas was practically not celebrated in Ukraine.

Vatican promotes Catholicism in Ukraine

Earlier, Vladimir Putin initiated a unilateral Christmas truce by announcing a ceasefire by Russian troops from 12:00 on January 6 to 24:00 on January 7. The Ukrainian side announced that the Armed Forces of Ukraine would not observe the ceasefire, and once again demanded that Russian units be withdrawn from the territory of Ukraine. At the moment of the beginning of the cessation of hostilities of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Ukrainian militants fired at Donetsk.

However, the Holy See at its level is trying to exert some influence on the Ukrainian situation. In December, Pope Francis, in an interview with the Spanish newspaper ABC, said that the Vatican does not accept any one side of the conflict, and called what is happening between Moscow and Kyiv a world war. At the same time, the pontiff noted that he calls for peace in Ukraine, but they do not listen to him.

According to Pope Francis, many countries are involved in the conflict and the confrontation has become global. The task of the church in this regard is to "accompany the people", but the priests should not policies.

    Perhaps in Ukraine they are actually pushing Catholicism. But will it work? One of the iconic Ukrainian holidays is Pokrov, which is also the day of the formation of the UPA. And in Catholicism there is no Pokrov at all. This is a purely Orthodox holiday

    The split of Orthodoxy creates favorable conditions for the promotion of other Christian religions - Catholicism, Protestantism and various others.

    Well, if Rome sponsored Christmas gifts (and Ukraine obviously has no time for them), then it is foolish to expect Orthodox ideology there.
    Rather, they took ready-made layouts from Europe and changed the inscriptions to Ukrainian

    Although the photo shows a clear self-propelled gun, there is not only Catholicism, there is not much design to be seen there.

    You can also try to teach a pig to eat grass. But what will come of it?
    So they are trying to convert a herd of Ukrainian "sheep" to Catholicism, instill Western values, plant Russophobia, and replace their own history.
    Those who will lead - those are really sheep, will go to the "barbecue".
    Who will keep the faith and Slavic values ​​- has a chance to survive.
    No middle ground.

    Oh sure! There was already a union with the Catholics under Grozny. But nothing good came of it.

    To break true faith, even a hundred years is not enough. This is not an announcement of working days or holidays.

    once again demanded the withdrawal of Russian units from the territory of Ukraine

    And where are the Russian soldiers on the territory of Ukraine?
