Western nations should act against Russian aggression, says Nuncio in Ukraine


Archbishop Thomas Gullickson, the apostolic nuncio in Ukraine, called upon the West to act against the persecution of Christians in Iraq and Russian aggression in Ukraine.

The prelate told journalist Andrea Gagliarducci that it is important that “we do not become insensitive to the plight of others and especially to that of our Catholic brothers and sisters around the world.”

Archbishop Gullickson added that he has “seen so much positive growth and will for good in Ukraine over the last half year, that I would recommend more decisive involvement by the West in opposition to Russian aggression.”

“We owe people more than an after-the-fact aid intervention to bind up wounds and restore essential services destroyed by an aggressor; we owe them more than a belated salvage operation, if you will,” he said.
