"This year, Bethlehem Light of Peace has arrived in Ukraine for the 15th time and will be available in different localities. Uzhgorod became the first" - said Rebryk.
According to him, the symbol of peace will also visit those who will celebrate Christmas outside their homes - in hospitals, shelters, orphanages, nursing homes, military and fire units and even in jails.
Rebryk noted that the event in addition to domestic has also an international trend, the essence of which is to show the unity of the Ukrainian people, in whatever part of the world they live. According to him, this year for the first time the transfer of the torch will be held in Russia.
"After all, Christmas is the best time when we can get rid of constant debate who is the best, and start the holiday dinner from the ignition of the fire and prayers. This is the fire that will then burn in the hearts" - said the coordinator of the event in Uzhgorod.
