Areas in Eastern Ukraine

now controlled by Russian backed rebels, have increasingly harsh restrictions on any non-Orthodox religious groups. Christians are facing demands to register, as well as orders to stop all religious activities. Officials have ordered churches to halt public worship or risk punishment. Rebel leaders previously insisted on registration; however, for church leaders who have attempted the process, all applications from Protestant communities have been rejected, making hundreds of churches now illegal. Fearing arrests and other reprisals, many of the churches have ceased public meetings. Please remember the thousands of Christians in Eastern Ukraine. Pray that these believers will be able to stand firm, resting in the strength and reassuring peace that comes from God alone. Despite the severe restrictions and political uncertainty, may the Gospel continue to powerfully spread throughout the region.
