‘Much more death than God’ on Ukrainian front during Orthodox Easter

(AFP) – In a small house near the front line, the location a closely guarded secret, around 40 Ukrainian soldiers gather to celebrate Orthodox Easter. “A spiritual relief” for most of the soldiers, tired after more than two years of harrowing warfare against Russia. Further south, commander Mykola Panychenko preferred to stay away from the service led by a visiting chaplain, stating: “Here, at the front, in these trenches, there is much more death than God.”
