Kyiv, Ukraine, Apr 4, 2022 / 11:25 am
A Ukrainian Catholic leader has said that he hopes Pope Francis will visit Kyiv “as soon as possible.”
Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk was responding to the pope’s comments on Sunday during an in-flight press conference at the end of his trip to Malta.
“We would like him to come to Ukraine as soon as possible,” the Kyiv-based leader of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church said.
The pope confirmed to a journalist at the start of his Malta visit on April 2 that a trip to the Ukrainian capital was “on the table.”
