Persecution of Catholics by Communist Russia
Continues in 1988

… Cardinal Lubachivsky


“Today we hear so much about ‘glasnost’ (openness) and ‘perestroika’ (restructuring). But, Mr. GOR­BACHEV’s reforms have yet to touch the Ukrainian Catholic Church which continues to suffer all sorts of violations of basic human rights…. Our priests are punished or fined for celebrating Mass in private homes, and the faithful live in constant fear of imprisonment.”

— Myroslav Cardinal LUBACHIVSKY,
exiled leader of Ukrainian Catholics,
at a Washington press conference,
May 3, 1988
