5/6/2022 – Belgorod Dnestrovsky – the treatment of Ukrainians in occupied cities

From Lxxx (Day 72): Dear brothers and sisters, Yesterday was a relatively calm day for us. There were several air alarms, but without serious consequences. We could work normally and move around the city.

Now we have a problem with getting fuel. The cars stand in lines for a long time in gas stations. The mayor encourages people to use public transport, but it doesn’t go regularly. The only supplier of the fuel is European Union and the prices are going up. Though we live in a small town we have to drive a lot around, so it’s a serious problem for us.

We were glad to hear about the liberation of some our territories in the south. We hope all our territories will be liberated soon.

People tell about the life in the occupied cities and villages. Russian military filters residents and arrest those who seem suspicious for them, especially young men. They confiscate everything they want and rob people. They take away telephones and people have no connection to the world around. They don’t allow people leave their homes and walk in the streets, so people often stay without food.

One young man who was able to escape from Kherson and lives in our town now told that he was arrested and kept imprisoned without any explanations. Several times he was taken out to be shot, but they shot past him. His escape was a miracle.

Our counselor, Axxx, wrote me from France yesterday. People from Ukraine keep coming there. Yesterday she was counseling a woman who escaped from a city near Mariupol with her little son. That lady (Anastasia) talked and talked without stop describing again and again how heavy bombs fell on the buildings around without stop and she was holding her son and praying for them to miss her building.

Please, pray for the family of our friend Victor, who died in the east. It’s a problem to bring his body home, so they don’t know when to plan the funeral.

Please, pray for people in the occupied cities and villages and pray for our soldiers who are taken captives. Russia doesn’t keep any rules of human right conventions. They humiliate and torture people.

Today we are going to have a support group meeting for refugees. Pray for people to be open and pray for their healing.

In Christ,
Lxxx

  1. I’m praying for all Ukraine, for Victor’s and many others’ families, and for those who need counselling.

  2. Our Father in heaven,
    Deliver us from evil.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
    Thy will be done.
    Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as in heaven.
    Thine is the kingdom, power and glory.

  5. My husband and I pray nightly for you all and that the Lord will be a shield and buckler to his people, to protect and provide for the innocent ones ~ particularly in the occupied cities. We pray that he will protect the Ukrainian soldiers, giving wisdom and intelligence that they may use their resources most wisely. We pray that the Lord will bring into The Kingdom those for whom z Christ has died who do not know him yet.
