Ukrainian churches call out for more bibles as Russian troops arrive in Kyiv

by Sophie Drew

Churches in Ukraine are calling out for more bibles, as Russian forces continue to take hold of areas of the country. 

Despite the terrifying situation that is rocking Ukraine, many nationals are turning to God in the midst of fear, with bibles flying off the shelves- as people seek his word. 

Of those people racing to buy bibles, many are experiencing, the message, for the first time, reports Christianity Today. 

Demand is so high that stores have run out of copies. 

Russian troops are currently heading into the nation's capital, Kyiv. 

Explosions have decimated a number of homes and local businesses. 

At last count, 137 Ukrainians had been killed, with a further 316 wounded. 

Fuel, cash and medical supplies are running low, Reuters reports. 

UK defence minister Ben Wallace, claims 450 Russian soldiers have also died in the invasion; members of the Church continue efforts to resolve the conflict peacefully, and minimise casualties on both sides of the border. 

'United in the Lord', leaders from Russia and Ukraine have joined together in prayer.

However, many church leaders in Ukraine, are preparing to take their faith underground - the European Evangelical Alliance previously declared Donbas, in South East Ukraine, an area 'where the church suffers most' due to the religious violations and ongoing conflicts. 

Many are concerned the limitations on Christian activities will spread as Russia takes hold of the country's capital.
