BALTIMORE (WJZ) – As tensions rise on the Ukraine-Russia Border, Ukrainian Americans in Baltimore are worried about loved ones and family members.
That is why members of the Ukrainian Catholic Church St. Michael the Archangel is praying for peace.
Ihor Remsky has been a member of the church for 69 years. He still has family in Ukraine and is wondering about the reasons behind Russia’s hostility.
“The people over there are wearing pins and needles,” he told WJZ.
Remsky questioned Russian President Putin’s intentions. Now, US President Joe Biden predicts a Russian invasion of Ukraine.
“At this point, I believe he’s made the decision,” Biden told reporters at the White House on Friday. “We have reason to believe that.”
Remsky says he fears the potential outcome of such a venture.
“I’m sure it will be a heavy price to pay for both sides, not just one, for both sides. There will be a lot of grieving parents,” he said.
After today’s church service, members of the church went to Washington, D.C., to peacefully march in support of Ukraine.
