+  Pope asks prayers for Ukraine; Archbishop says country in danger

  • Description: The head of the Ukrainian Catholic Church has called on the people to be ready to sacrifice their lives to protect the country's freedom, as the threat of a Russian attack looms over the horizon. Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk of Kiev said in a statement, “"Our people and our country are currently in danger. We must stand up for our country, to be ready -- if necessary -- to sacrifice our lives in order to protect the sovereign, free, independent, and unified state." The Ukrainian army remained on high alert this week, even though Russian President Vladimir Putin insisted that he was not planning on making Crimea a part of Russia. 6,000 Russian troops took control of the Crimean Peninsula in Ukraine on Monday, with British Foreign Secretary William Hague calling the crisis the "biggest in Europe in the 21st Century." We talk to The Right Reverend Andriy Chirovsky, of the Ukrainian Catholic Church.
