      Automobile Religious Procession Conducted in Ukraine

      03.11.2008, [17:21] // UOC-MP //

      Lviv—An automobile religious procession around
      Ukraine with an icon of the Mother of God was
      launched in Lviv. The unusual procession is
      organized by the All-Ukrainian Brotherhood of
      Oleksandr Nevskyi with the blessing of the head
      of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Moscow
      Patriarchate, Metropolitan Volodymyr.

      “Its purpose is to ask the Holy Virgin in prayer
      to protect our home land from the harmful action
      of false spirituality and amorality, totalitarian
      sects and cults, customs and traditions foreign
      to our people and other means of civilization
      expansion. In recent years this aggressive
      invasion has been especially heavy on the eastern
      Slavic Orthodox nations,” said the organizers to
      Interfax-religion news agency on 30 October.

      The route of the event includes the following
      regions along the country’s perimeter: Lviv,
      Zakarpattia/Trans-Carpathia, Ivano-Frankivsk,
      Chernivtsi, Vinnytsia, Odesa, Mykolaiiv, Kherson,
      Crimea, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk, Luhansk, Kharkiv,
      Sumy, Chernihiv, Kyiv, Zhytomyr, Rivne, Lutsk and Lviv.

      “The icon-bearing procession will also
      symbolically go through small sections of the
      road in the territory of Russia nad Belarus to
      emphasize the unity of the three branches of the
      Rus people,” said one of the organizers.

      The total length of the route is 10 thousand
      kilometers and is set to end in a few weeks.
