Pope Francis is ready to become a mediator between Moscow and Kyiv
This is reported by RBC-Ukraine, which cited Pope Francis' interview with La Stampa.
"The Holy See is ready to do everything possible to mediate and end the conflict in Ukraine," he said.
When asked whether the Pope believes in the possibility of reconciliation between Moscow and Kyiv, the pontiff urged everyone not to give up on this issue.
"But everyone should devote themselves to demilitarizing hearts, starting with their own, and then disarming, disarming violence. We should all be pacifists. To wish for peace, not just a truce that can only serve for rearmament. Real peace, which is the fruit of dialogue," he said.
Earlier, Pope Francis condemned the latest wave of missile strikes on Ukraine, calling for a cease-fire to prevent the risk of escalation of the conflict, and asking God to "hurry" to end it.
