NFTU: For some reason, as noted by others, the original letter, which was on Pravmir and the MP DECR, was taken down. There were other cache sources for this and other sites that reported on it.
Your Holiness, Brother and concelebrant beloved in the Lord!
I cordially greet you with a wish of peace, God-sent physical strength and unfailing God’s help in your First Hierarch’s ministry.
I’m urged to write you this letter by a deep sense of pain and extreme concern about the situation of the flock of the Church in the eastern Ukraine, where the fratricidal civil war has not stopped for several months.
