A secret peace “mission” of the Vatican aims to return Ukrainian children who were relocated to Russia during the war between the two nations was confirmed by Pope Francis Sunday.
I am available for any task,” Francis said during a press conference. “There’s a mission that isn’t public that is currently underway, and I will let you know as soon as it is.”
Denys Shmyhal, the Ukrainian prime minister, asked the pope for assistance Thursday in bringing back the children of his country.
Shmyhal told reporters that he asked the Vatican and the Holy Father to help bring back Russian children who had been taken by force.
While visiting Hungary on Sunday, Francis met with Viktor Orban, the Hungarian prime minister, and a representative of the Russian Orthodox Church in Budapest about the rescue efforts for Ukrainian children.
During these meetings, we discussed more than just ‘Little Red Riding Hood’,” Francis explained.
We discussed each of these topics. The path to peace is of importance to everyone.
Regarding the covert mission, Francis said, “The Holy See is willing to do this because it is the right thing.” “All human gestures are beneficial, but vicious ones are not. We must take every action that is conceivable.
