Zelenskyy invites Pope Francis to visit Ukraine
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has invited Pope Francis to visit Ukraine and expressed confidence that it will be possible to arrange such a visit.
"In the morning I spoke with His Holiness Pope Francis about the search for peace for Ukraine, for our state, about the atrocities of the occupiers, about the humanitarian corridors to the surrounding cities. I thanked His Holiness for his clear and strong position against the war and for his prayers for Ukraine. I invited him to visit our country at this crucial time. I believe that we will be able to organize this important visit, which will definitely support each of us, each of the Ukrainians," Zelenskyy said in a video message.
On March 20, at a traditional Sunday meeting with pilgrims, Pope Francis called on the international community to do everything possible to end the war in Ukraine.
