Ukraine – Christians Persecuted in Russian-Occupied Areas

There were recent reports of harassment against Christian citizens and others in Russian-occupied Crimea, which Russia seized control of in 2014. Three Baptists – S. Gerasimenko, P. Shokha and L. Shokha, were charged on 1st July this year for participating in “missionary activities”. So far, no date has been set for their hearings.

Then in February this year, Liana P. was found guilty of leading a Pentecostal group without informing the Russian authorities. And three others were arrested around the same time for handing out religious leaflets outside a shopping centre in Kerch. Thankfully, the case against these three Christians was dismissed in mid-May this year.

Pray for those who are presently facing trial  for endeavouring to share their faith in Christ with others. Pray that these believers will receive strength and courage to stand firm in their faith. Pray for a peaceful resolution to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine so that any further threat of destruction and potential loss of life will come to an end.
