Service of Ukrainian Chaplains in the Years of the Patriotic War 2014-2016 with the Russian Empire


  • Serhiy Zdioruk



The problems of the establishment of the Service of Chaplains in the Armed Forces, the National Guard and other military formations of Ukraine in the context of the war with Russia have their own peculiarities and differences. The destabilizing role of the Moscow Patriarchate, in the jurisdiction of which is the vast majority of Orthodox communities in Ukraine, creates critical threats for the Ukrainian State. In order to effectively organize the operation of the Ukrainian Chaplain Service, to mobilize the entire potential of the Ukrainian nation and to absorb global experience, in particular the armies of NATO member states, in order to provide spiritual, humanitarian and patriotic education, and moral and combat and psychological training of Ukrainian soldiers, it is necessary to mobilize the Ukrainian nation.
