Pastor Igor Bandura of the Ukrainian Baptist Union said: ‘All Baptist churches that have prayer houses will halt meetings in them, so Sunday worship and other services will not take place’. He said church members fear that if they do not halt their worship, officials could raid their worship meetings or arrest church leaders.
