In light of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Bishop Paul Chomnycky of the Ukrainian Catholic Diocese of Stamford joined "All Things Considered" to talk about what Ukrainians living in Connecticut are thinking and doing about the attack on their homeland.

The bishop also has strong words about why this is happening.
