Ukraine-Russia Conflict Broken Down, by Greg Yoder, Mission Network News
The “flesh and blood’ battles over Ukraine are raging, but the spiritual battles are equally monumental. Whereas Putin is destabilizing the unity of Ukraine, Satan is destroying the unity of the Christians in the Former Soviet Union (FSU). That’s the word from a supporter of Russian Ministries.
"Russian commentator Vladimir Pastukhov says: “War has been declared not on Ukraine but on the West: on its policy, ideology, way of life, values, and way of thinking. This is a ‘holy’ war; that is, an ideological and religious one, which is condemned to become total.”
"Eurasian Christian ministries with offices in Ukraine are being marginalized by their Russian brethren. Ukrainians are no longer welcome to conduct seminars in Russia. Venues are being relocated from Ukraine. A Christian, Russian-language Web site for children is considered suspect because it originates in Ukraine. Crimean Baptists are now split over allegiance to headquarters in Ukraine or Russia. Rants by believers on Russian Facebook are devoid of Christian love."
