Friday 25 February 2022
1 – “In Ukraine, we are facing an issue of human dignity,” says a Ukrainian intellectual
2 – Ukrainian faithful of Moscow Patriarchate against Putin’s invasion
3 – The Ukrainian crisis is a Russian fabrication, according to George Weigel
4 – Hong Kong bishop stresses dialogue in troubled region
5 – Traditionis custodes: Italian theologian unfavorable to FSSP decree

1“In Ukraine, we are facing an issue of human dignity,” says a Ukrainian intellectual

Constantin Sigov, a Ukrainian scholar who teaches theology and philosophy and directs the European Center at the University of Kiev, speaks to French magazine, La Vie, about the social and moral concerns surrounding the situation in Ukraine. “Sometimes we feel like we are living in a nightmare from which we will wake up,” he says as he denounces the “degradation” of communication coming from Russia and its officials in the last weeks. Professor Sigov explains how Ukraine “defends the values of democracy and freedom which are those of Europe,” which is why this conflict is an “issue of human dignity” ultimately. He says that if Europe manages to stay united in this crisis “its self-esteem will grow,” and that this isn’t a “Ukrainian crisis” or a  “civil war, but a Russian crisis, with an aggression.”
