CWN Editor's Note: A spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin said, “We can’t comment yet,” when questioned about a report that Pope Francis could travel to Moscow in June.

The director of the Vatican press office, Matteo Bruni, had told reporters on March 20 that a report in the European press—that Putin had invited the Pope to visit, and plans were underway for the trip—were inaccurate. The Kremlin spokesman’s comment left open the possibility that the rumor contained some element of truth.
