Dmytro Kuleba: Pope Francis' visit to Ukraine would bring support to all those who suffer from aggression
In a conversation with the Crux portal, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has admitted that he does not associate hopes for peace with this visit. Over the past three months, many have tried to achieve this, but all attempts have failed. In turn, the Pope will bring peace to all those who are fighting for their homeland, resisting the aggressor and those who have lost their loved ones.
Dmytro Kuleba has highly appreciated the . It is important that Archbishop Paul Richard Gallagher did not limit himself to visiting Kyiv, but also visited the adjoining area affected by aggression, as well as the city of Lviv. It enabled him to better grasp the situation and sentiment of Ukraine. The lead of Ukrainian diplomacy has also recalled a personal conversation with Gallagher, which was not diplomatic.
"It is important to talk openly with our friends, and the Vatican is our friend," Minister Kuleba stressed. In his opinion, owing to such an open exchange of views, Ukraine can gain awareness of the Pope's restrictions on what he can do and say, and the Vatican can better understand the genesis of this war.
