Russia Invades Ukraine

Russia Invades Ukraine

 In the early morning hours of February 24, 2022, Russia began a military invasion of Ukraine, despite the efforts of world leaders to avoid war. How might this military conflict affect the world? The secretary-general of the United Nations, António Guterres, said a few days ago: “The price in human suffering, destruction and damage to European and global security is too high to contemplate.”

What significance do events like this have according to the Bible?

Why can you be hopeful about the future?

  •   The Bible says that God will bring “an end to wars throughout the earth.” (Psalm 46:9) Read the article “A Real Hope for a Better Tomorrow” to learn more about the future that God promises.

  •   Jesus taught his followers to pray for God’s Kingdom to come. (Matthew 6:9, 10) That Kingdom is the heavenly government that will accomplish God’s will for the earth, and God’s will includes world peace. To learn how the Kingdom can benefit you, watch the video What Is God’s Kingdom?

 There are more than 129,000 of Jehovah’s Witnesses living in Ukraine. Like the Witnesses in every other country, they imitate Jesus by remaining politically neutral and refusing to take part in war. (John 18:36) Worldwide, Jehovah’s Witnesses continue to declare the “good news of the Kingdom” as the solution to mankind’s problems, including war. (Matthew 24:14) We invite you to contact us to learn more about the Bible’s message of hope.
