Evangelist Franklin Graham will return to Ukraine to deliver a special Easter message nearly two months after Russia invaded the country.

"I'll be going back to Ukraine to preach an Easter message that will air on @FoxNews Easter Sunday, April 17, at 12 PM ET," he announced.

The invasion has led to nearly 1,800 civilian deaths and left more than 2,400 injured, according to the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights.

The evangelist traveled to Ukraine early last month where his humanitarian ministry, Samaritan's Purse, set up a medical facility in Lviv.

Graham, who is also the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association told CBN News that prayer is crucial for the people of Ukraine.

"We need to be praying for the people of Ukraine," he told CBN News. "Prayer is the No. 1 thing. Encouraging Christians to pray for those of us that are there responding in Jesus' name that we will be His light. We will be a witness for Him in the middle of this crisis."
