Ukrainian village faces a churchless Easter

Ukrainian village faces a churchless Easter

There will be no Orthodox Easter service this Sunday at the church of Lukashivka, a village in northern Ukraine.

The house of worship is all but destroyed, a wreck of shattered brick and blackened stone. One golden dome has been blown off and its bells have fallen to the ground. A small metal cross remains, along with a stand for candles.

Russian soldiers used the church in Lukashivka, near Chernihiv, for storing ammunition.
