On Sunday, February 23, 2014, following the Divine Liturgy, His All-Holiness held a Memorial Service (Trisagion) for those who lost their lives during the recent ongoing protests in Ukraine. The service, which was held in Greek and Church Slavonic, was attended by the Acting Consul General of Ukraine in Istanbul, the Hon. Andriy Mostyskyi, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Georgia to Turkey, His Excellency Irakli Koplatadze, as well as faithful from all over the world, including Turkey, Greece, Ukraine and other countries.

Afterward, the Patriarch lit a candle at a small tribute arranged in the courtyard outside of the Patriarchal Church of St. George by Ukrainian Orthodox faithful living in Istanbul, who were inspired by the recent message of His All-Holiness calling for a peaceful resolution to the turmoil in Ukraine.
