Pope Francis has expressed doubts that he will travel to Kyiv anytime soon, a prospect he had discussed with journalists during his recent travels to and from Malta.
“I cannot do anything that puts higher objectives at risk, which are the end of the war, a truce or, at least, a humanitarian corridor," the pope said in an interview published in La Nacion.
"What good would it do for the pope to go to Kyiv if the war continued the next day?” he told the newspaper.
Pope Francis earlier this month was asked about the possibility of traveling to Ukraine's capital, an idea he said was "on the table."
