RISU: NUNCIO GULLICKSON: WE OWE UKRAINE MORE THAN A SALVAGE OPERATION

The apostolic nuncio to UkraineArchbishop Thomas Gullickson stressed that its people deserve more than after-the-fact aid and should be allowed to live in peace, without the threat of outside aggressors, Catholic World Reporter informs.
In a recent interview with Vatican Radio, he voiced concern for the life of the Church in Ukraine, saying in effect that Russian aggression places the Church’s institutional survival at risk.

Addressing potential criticism that his alarm may sound exaggerated when compared to the images coming from Syria and Iraq, Archbishop Gullickson told CNA Sept. 1 that he believes it important “that we do not become insensitive to the plight of others and especially to that of our Catholic brothers and sisters around the world.”
