The Bethlehem Fire of Peace is shining in the RSA

Today, in Uzhgorod, scouts of the regional organization "Plast" solemnly handed the Bethlehem Fire of Peace to the Acting Head of the Regional State Administration Oleksandr Petik.

The tradition of the official transfer of the Fire has been existing in Ukraine since 1998. For the first time this year, it was handed over to representatives of the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration.

Oleksandr Petik thanked scouts for maintaining and promoting an excellent pre-Christmas tradition - the spread of the Bethlehem Fire, which is a symbol of warmth, peace and harmony, love for people.
Transcarpathian scouts brought the Bethlehem Fire of Peace to Ukraine from Vienna. Before that, it had visited Ukrainian communities in many European countries, the United States and Canada. Then, the fire will travel from city to city in all regions of Ukraine.

      The fire transfer was blessed by clergy.
