Over 115 Holy Sites Damaged in Ukraine Since Start of Russian Invasion, Top UN Official Tells Security Council, Urging Respect for Religious Freedom.
Several Delegates Criticize Moscow for Calling Meeting after Carrying Out Missile Strike on Historic Cathedral in Odesa.
Warning that 116 religious sites in Ukraine have been damaged since the Russian Federation’s invasion of that country began in February 2022, a senior United Nations official urged the warring parties today to respect and uphold fundamental human rights, including freedom of religion or belief and the right to manifest and practice one’s religion freely and safely.

“Religious sites should be places of worship, not places of war,” declared Nihal Saad, Director of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations in her briefing to the Security Council — a meeting requested by the Russian Federation, which has sought the Council’s attention to Kyiv’s oppressive policies towards the Orthodox Church in Ukraine.
