Less known among international broadcasters, Radio Vatican offers outstanding in-depth coverage of Ukraine crisis. On January 25, 2014, three out of five top news stories on the Radio Vatican English language news website were related to events in Ukraine.

While the media is reporting that the ongoing protests are motivated by the Ukrainian government’s refusal to sign an agreement that would have steered Ukraine towards Europe, Ukrainian Greek Catholic Bishop Borys Gudziak told Radio Vatican that the story “has a much broader context and a much deeper quality.”

The Maidan movement is a reaction against the general atmosphere of fear and intimidation in Ukraine and against wanton corruption in the country, he said. It is a movement of principle and dignity, with spiritual expression, Radio Vatican reported. Bishop Gudziak heads the Ukrainian Greek Catholic eparchy of France, Belgium and Luxembourg. He also serves as president of the Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv, Ukraine.
