Ukrainian Adventists Worry About Possible Russian Invasion
From months of sometimes-deadly anti-government protests to concern about a possible Russian invasion, Ukrainians living in Sacramento continue to worry about their former homeland.
Pastor Roman Tsyganiuk of the Sacramento Slavic Seventh-day Adventist Church says he and members of the church are watching closely.
"People always come to me and tell their opinion and especially their worries," he said via a translator.
And he says he encourages them to do one thing above all else in reaction.
"We all also ask our family and just our church members to show love, peace and do not show any type of aggression," he said.
He says most in the church are in regular contact with family and friends in Ukraine.
