Pope still hopes to visit Ukraine, Russia
February 06, 2023
CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis said that he remains hopeful that he will be able to meet with both Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in their respective countries.
The Pope told reporters on February 5 that he is looking for a “small window to negotiate” with the two leaders, in hopes of ending the war in Ukraine.
He said that his effort would involve a visit to both countries, and he is still waiting for a positive response from Russia. “If I didn’t go to Kyiv, it’s because it was not possible at that moment to go to Moscow,” he said.
