According to RISU, an initiative group of clergymen and laymen of different Christian denominations has prepared a document “Longing for the Truth That Makes Us Free”, reflecting considerations about the problem of truth and post-truth in modern society.

The leaders of the Churches were informed of this initiative by the priests and laymen, and they blessed it.

"For several years in a row, a group of Ukrainians have participated in the meetings of the “Truth, Justice and Peacebuilding” Commission. During discussions, we have often run into a problem that still has no solution: the aggressor (Russia) not only does not recognize the truth but also creates "its alternative truth", which disorients people, and the reaction of the world to this is far from straightforward," - commented RISU, one of the initiators of the document, Myroslav Marynovych. Politicians, of course, are trying to solve this problem, but the political prescriptions have not yet cured this illness. In the end, we asked ourselves, "What are the recipes to be found in Christian teaching?" And what could Ukrainian Christians say in that regard?”

The authors of the document encourage readers not only to read the text, but also to sign it if "the thoughts expressed in it will resonate in their heart" (signature form).
