Pray for the current situation with the Russian occupation of Crimea, that it will come to a peaceful solution.
Communism fell two decades ago, but its effects are still deeply felt. The market economy has actually driven many to poverty while lining the pockets of the elite. Corruption reaches to the highest levels while pensioners, teachers, doctors and other state employees struggle economically. The moral vacuum of post-Communist freedom led to rapidly increasing rates of alcoholism and AIDS. Pray for righteousness, justice and compassion to shine forth into this situation.
