Pope Francis

Zelensky calls Pope France to mediate Ukraine-Russian conflict

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called Tuesday on Pope Francis to mediate in the Ukrainian military conflict with Russia nearly one month after the conflict intensified on 24 February.

Zelensky said he had held a telephone call with the pope and that he had informed “His Holiness about the difficult humanitarian situation and the blocking of rescue corridors by Russian troops”.

Zelensky on Monday had criticized NATO and said: “NATO should either say now that they are accepting us, or openly say they are not accepting us because they are afraid of Russia and that is true. And then we need to calm down and say ok, there are NATO member countries that can provide us security guarantees without membership in NATO.”
