Today, April 16, Orthodox believers celebrate



However, for the second year in a row, due to the full-scale Russian invasion, Ukrainians cannot celebrate this great holiday as before.

Despite the war, families are trying to recreate the atmosphere of Easter at home.

Ukrainians bake Easter paschas, paint eggs, go to church and greet each other with the words: "Christ is risen! He is truly risen!".

Ukrainian celebrities also congratulate you on Easter in their photo blogs.

They write a lot of nice words and wishes, and also show their stripes.

"Easter. This holiday is associated with Easter, painted eggs, family dinners and smiles. This year, Easter evokes somewhat different associations, and it is difficult to celebrate as before. Easter is a symbol of the victory of life over death, good over evil, truth over lies. It's the 417th day of our fight against our insatiable neighbor, and maybe (I want to believe and I do believe) this day will be the beginning of the end. The end of war, death and suffering. Life must conquer death, and we must conquer the enemy. Period. Exactly therefore, I wish everyone Cossack strength, the spirit of victory and perseverance. This will help drive out the invaders faster and enable our soldiers to celebrate Easter together with their families in their homes. Christ is Risen!"

- the cook wrote in the photo blog.

"My dear friends! Christ is Risen! He is truly Risen! Today is the greatest Orthodox church holiday - Easter! It is one of my favorite holidays. But already the second Easter, everything feels different. Now every Ukrainian prays more often than before. Now every Ukrainian prays for one thing - about the victory of good over evil, about the victory of Ukraine! Once upon a time, about 2,000 years ago, Jesus died for each of us, for our freedom from sin. Now, many thousands of our soldiers make their sacrifice so that we can be free, but not from of sin, but from Russia. Let us remember every day the sacrifice that God made by giving his son for us. And also remember those who died for our freedom, for our land! They wanted to break us, break us, but only managed to strengthen and unite!"

- emphasized the actress.

"The time of hope... the time of birth - and rebirth! Nature itself resurrects - and reminds us that light - always defeats darkness. And truth - will defeat evil. Therefore, we will certainly win: with faith and love. With a bright Easter holiday, friends! Take care of yourself and your loved ones. Remember those who are in heaven. And we believe: Christ is risen - Ukraine will rise!
