The Vatican is considering an invitation to the Pope to visit Ukraine and choosing the right moment when the visit can be most effective.

This was announced by the ambassador of Ukraine to the Vatican Andriy Yurash on the air of the national telethon, Ukrinform reports.

Commenting on the resumption by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of invitations to the pope to visit Ukraine, the diplomat noted that they had previously been received from the president and Prime Minister of Ukraine, as well as from the leaders of the Roman and Greek Catholic churches in Ukraine.

"The basic thesis (of the Vatican – ed.) – we are considering, we understand the weight and want to implement this visit at a time when we can expect to receive the most significant positive result," Yurash said.

He suggested that now the Pope's visit to Ukraine is one of the most important issues on the agenda in the capital of the Holy See.

"I really want to hope that a balanced, obvious decision will be made in a week or two," the Ukrainian ambassador to the Vatican said.

As reported, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine said on May 3 that Ukraine, unlike Russia, confirms its commitment to dialogue and once again resumes the invitation to the pope to pay a visit to Kyiv.
