“The president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s Euro-Asia Division is calling on all Adventists to pray for peace in Ukraine,” according to APD and Adventist Today (link, 28 June 2014). Furthermore, he “has urged church members to give a donation to the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) in support of people who have lost their homes and belongings in the unrest.”

The article continues:

Pastor Guillermo Biaggi declared Sabbath, June 28, a day of prayer across the division, which includes Ukraine, Russia and 10 other former Soviet republics as well as Afghanistan. His call comes nearly four months after Adventist leaders in Russia and Ukraine released a joint statement advocating for peacekeeping efforts.

“We pray for wisdom from heaven to guide the countries’ leadership toward a peaceful resolution,” Biaggi said last Thursday. “We want to see peace in order to avoid losing lives as we have in the past few days.”
