The Uzbek embassy in Moscow released a statement saying there would be serious repercussions for any Uzbek citizen living in Russia who joins Russia’s war in Ukraine. This came after reports of military units being formed who are not officially Russian army but volunteers from various ethnic groups. Praise God for this stand that Uzbekistan has taken. Pray that there will be investigation and follow through. Pray that Uzbekistan will have wisdom to know how to stand against Russian aggression in Ukraine and be protected from Russian reprisals. Pray for a new beginning in this region of the world (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 4:16-18).
