A woman holds a wooden Easter egg painted with the colors of the Ukrainian flag during a pro-Ukrainian rally in the eastern Ukrainian city of Lugansk, on April 19, 2014Politics overshadowed Easter observances in Kiev and Moscow, with the Orthodox religious leaders in each capital trading barbs over the crisis in Ukraine -- while the US reportedly prepared to send ground forces to neighbouring Poland. Patriarch Filaret thundered to the faithful in pro-West Kiev that Russia was an "enemy" whose "attack" on Ukraine was doomed to failure because it was evil and contrary to God's will. Worshippers who gathered for a service which stretched into Sunday morning at St Michael's Cathedral in Kiev, close to the Maidan, the Ukrainian capital's protest tent-city, said they had hopes of a peaceful resolution. However, in Moscow, the patriarch of the Russian Church, Kirill, delivered a prayer for Ukraine in which he called on God in turn to put "an end to the designs of those who want to destroy Holy Russia".
