Quote: "Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia blesses the Ukrainian Armed Forces' counter-offensive."

More details: It also contains the text of a prayer for the Ukrainian counter-offensive in Ukrainian: "Oh Lord God of strength, God of our salvation, You alone work miracles. Look in mercy and compassion on the humility of Your servants and listen to us in humanity and have mercy on us, as our enemies have gathered against us to destroy us and destroy our state and our holy places. Help us, oh God, our Saviour, and liberate us, for the glory of Your name, and may the words spoken by Moses be fulfilled: be brave, stand firm, and see salvation from the Lord, for the Lord fights for us. Glory to Ukraine!"


The website also contains the captions "We believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine", "Victory is for God and Ukraine", "Support the Armed Forces and Ukraine", etc.
