"At the same time, the Church is aware that if someone, moved by a sense of duty, by the need to fulfill an oath, remains faithful to his vocation and dies in the line of military duty, then he undoubtedly commits an act that it is equivalent to a sacrifice", assured the patriarch.

Thus, he has considered that said individual "sacrifices himself for others", in such a way that "this sacrifice washes away all the sins that a person has committed", he has riveted.

The representative of the Russian Orthodox Church has compared those mobilized with Jesus Christ, sacrificing himself with his death in the war.

These statements are made days after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a "partial mobilization" of 300,000 Russian reservists to participate in the war in Ukraine.
