Three UGCC priest in Crimea are located. They are safe - RISU

RISU reports -  The three Ukrainian Greek Catholic priests reported missing in Crimea Sunday are alive and safe. RISU corresponded spoke with Fr. Mykola Kvych, pastor of the UGCC in Sevastopol. He is safe and his parishioners helped him to leave the Crimea. He is now in mainland Ukraine. As we reported earlier Crimean "self-defence units" were trying to attack him as he was giving an interview to Finnish journalists.

"At the door of the apartment where I live, several unknown individuals appeared today, continually ringing the bell for long periods of time and trying to break the door in. When they had gone, I left the building with my parishioners. I took only the Eucharistic set (chalice and paten) and documents," said Fr. Mykola.

Fr. Kvych also said that he spoke to Fr. Igor Havryliv, pastor in Yalta, who said that he and Fr. Bogdan Kostecki, who serves in Yevpatoria, are now in a safe place. He didn't mention where exactly.
