As the Russian war and atrocities continue, the Voice of Ukraine seeks to tell the story of our Ukrainian brothers and sisters and partner churches in Ukraine, and to respond to the crisis with truthful information about the war, to make critical needs known, and to assist by mobilizing prayer and resources to address these needs.
Ultimately, we want to make known the hope of Christ through all we say and do during this crisis. Thank you for joining us!

From Jamie Peipon: What a day. The president of russia gave a bizarre speech today at the kremlin. He then proceeded to sign several documents to “officially” accept the Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Luhansk, and Donetsk regions into the russian federation. Here is an exhaustive list that I’ve painstakingly accumulated of every single change made to Ukraine’s…Keep reading

From Jamie Peipon: Yesterday there were conflicting reports about whether putin would make any announcements about the results of the votes in Ukraine for fear that announcing a “victory” during the civil unrest caused by the mobilization was not quite the clear-cut PR triumph they were hoping for. But, as you can see in the…Keep reading
From Lyuda (Day 219): Dear brothers and sisters, I didn’t sleep well and my thoughts wandered from one topic to another and kept returning to the events from the news.

From Jamie Peipon: There are many unsung heroes throughout Ukraine, both in the military and those who offer other kinds of support.

From Lyuda (Day 218): Dear brothers and sisters, Thank you very much for congratulating Sergey. He is very touched. We had a good day yesterday, sunny and warm. We went to a small café on the river estuary. It was nice to be there and it’s good that this café works. We used to come…Keep reading
When war broke out in Ukraine, the church in Kharkiv—located just 15 miles from the Russian border—scattered. Some members fled to western Ukraine, some further west into other countries. Of the 117 church members, 50 are now living outside of Ukraine in nine different countries. Those who remained in Ukraine are in 19 different cities.Keep reading
From Jamie Peipon: Throughout history, there have been countless times that people have been forced to flee from their homes because their land has been invaded by an enemy army.

From Maia Mikhaluk FB post (Kyiv): 215th day of ruzzian invasion. I am not a theologian, and I am not religious (I don’t follow any rituals), but I am a Christian, and my faith (not religion) is the center of my worldview. I can explain what I believe in and why. I might not be…Keep reading

From Jamie Peipon: The pace with which russia has been attempting to mobilize young men for war is pretty shocking. Apparently, some of those mobilized last week are already showing up in Ukraine.
