Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, Pope Francis’ representative in Ukraine, was shot at Saturday as he delivered humanitarian aid near the city of Zaporizhzhia, Vatican News reported.
The report said Krajewski was not hurt.
The incident happened while the Polish-born cardinal was bringing food and other supplies to people stuck in a “no-man’s land” on the front lines.
Krajewski and his companions came under small-arm’s fire and sought cover. “For the first time in my life,” he told Vatican News afterward, “I didn’t know where to run … because it’s not enough to run. You have to know where to go.”
