Pope Francis is considering visiting Ukraine to express his support, Ukraine's ambassador to the Vatican, Andriy Yurash, said after a meeting Saturday.
"I am very close to Ukraine and I want to express this closeness through my visit to Ukraine," were important words Pope Francis said during today's meeting with the Holy Father. Ukraine has waited many years, especially since the beginning of the war, for the Pope and will be happy to meet him before his trip to Kazakhstan," Jurasz wrote on Twitter.
