Pope urges Zelensky, Putin to reach agreement

Pope Francis on Sunday implored Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky to end the conflict between Moscow and Kiev.

He called on Putin to "stop this spiral of violence and death," and advised Zelensky to be open to serious proposals for peace. The pontiff also said the international community ought to make an effort to help the two nations get to the negotiating table "without allowing themselves to be drawn into dangerous escalations."

"After seven months of hostilities, let us use all diplomatic means, even those that may not have been used so far, to bring an end to this terrible tragedy. War in itself is an error and a horror," he concluded.
