Building of a strong state is possible only through the preservation of national culture, supporting of family values and spirituality. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said during a meeting with Primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate, Patriarch of Kyiv and All Rus-Ukraine, Patriarch Filaret.
"I express my gratitude for a good degree of our dialogue. It is of primal importance that we realize the challenges we are facing. The consolidation of spirituality and faith is our critical mission", said Volodymyr Groysman. "Spirituality is the bedrock of the State. We will spare no effort to ensure the spirituality is getting firm, the way to the temple is free. Today we will approve the new agenda and formulate the issues that require consideration".
His Holiness Patriarch Filaret thanked the Head of Government for the support of church and religious organizations in Ukraine.
"We feel the Government's support for the church and religious organizations in Ukraine. It is very important for us. I also want to thank you for your position in strengthening the family values in Ukraine. No family, no nation, no State", stressed His Holiness Patriarch Filaret.
