"Ukraine, unfortunately, has been pulled into a military conflict. So far no one is shooting, so far people are not dying, but it is obvious that military intervention has already begun," Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk of Kiev-Halych said in a statement over the weekend, Catholic News Service reported on Monday.

"Our people and our country are currently in danger," the archbishop added. "We must stand up for our country, to be ready -- if necessary -- to sacrifice our lives in order to protect the sovereign, free, independent, and unified state."
