On Saturday, the 30th of August/12th of September 2015, a group of twenty youths from Ukraine, accompanied by the Ambassador of the Palestinian Autonomy to Ukraine, Mr Muhammad Asad, visited the Patriarchate.
They were welcomed by H.B. Theophilos, Patriarch of Jerusalem, in the presence of Hagiotaphite Fathers. Patriarch Theophios congratulated the youths for their initiative to visit the Holy Land and assured them that the Church of Jerusalem, linked to the Church of Ukraine through firm spiritual and historical ties, ardently prays at the Holy Sepulchre for peace in Ukraine and for the prosperity of the Ukrainian people.
The youths went on to perform popular songs and dances of Ukraine.
