Cape Coral reverend with ties to Ukraine weighs in on conflict

By Sara Belsole. CREATED Aug 3, 2014

CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Retired Revered Dennis Royall spent years traveling to Donetsk, Ukraine to teach at the Reformed International Theological Seminary.

However classes at the school are now suspended, while Russian separatists try to take control of the region.

Royall says his students and colleagues are doing what they can to survive the violence.

"They have fled Donetsk, regrettably, they didn't want to go because of their commitment to their students, but it's gotten so dangerous and so bad," Royall said.
 
Royall says the Russian Ukrainian conflict needs to be humanized.
 
"We are hung up on politics and we are losing touch with the people, the thousands, millions of people," Royall said.
