Russian patriarch Kirill calls for Orthodox Christmas truce in Ukraine

Patriarch Kirill of Moscow, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, called on Thursday for both sides of the war in Ukraine to observe a Christmas truce.

Orthodox Christians, including those living in Russia and Ukraine, celebrate Christmas on January 6-7.

“I, Kirill, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, appeal to all the parties involved in the internecine conflict to cease fire and establish a Christmas truce from 12.00 on January 6 until 24.00 on January 7 so that Orthodox people can attend services on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day,” he said.
