Pope Francis condemns putin for “infantile” war, says he may visit Ukraine


Roman Catholic church leader, Pope Francis has said that he is studying a possible visit to Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine as he blasted Russian President Vladimir Putin for launching a “savage” war. Speaking on Saturday, April 2 as he arrived in Malta, he delivered his most pointed and personalized denunciation of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Pope Francis avoided referring to Russia or Mr Putin by name, but described him as as “some potentate” who had unleashed the threat of nuclear war on the world in an “infantile and destructive aggression” under the guise of “anachronist claims of nationalistic interests.”
Speaking to Maltese authorities, Pope Francis said: “We had thought that invasions of other countries, savage street
fighting and atomic threats were grim memories of a distant
past.” The pope added that a possible visit to Kyiv was “on the
table”, but no dates have been set or a trip confirmed. The mayor of the Ukrainian capital had invited Francis to come as a messenger of peace along with other religious figures.
Francis also said that the war has pained his heart so much
that he sometimes forgets about the pain in his knees.
Saturday’s personalization of Putin marked a new level of
criticism by the pope, just hours after Ukrainian President
Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned of mines outside the capital,
Kyiv.
