In particular, a group of scouts will bring the Peace Light of Bethlehem and Christmas presents to our defenders into the war zone. The scouts will deliver the Light to all Ukrainians till Christmas, so that on Christmas Eve the symbol of peace, which we desire so much, will be in our homes, ” the official page of Plast – Ukrainian Scouting informs.
