In a meeting with Ukrainian children at the Vatican, Pope Francis shared that he's looking for the "right moment" to visit Kyiv.

“I would like to go to Ukraine, only, I have to wait for the right moment to do so,” assured Pope Francis during a conversation with children gathered in the Courtyard of St. Damasus in the Vatican on June 4, 2022. This new edition of the “Children’s Train”, organized in conjunction with the Parvis des Gentils, took place this year in the presence of refugee children from Ukraine.

“I don’t have a question but rather a request: can you come to Ukraine to save all the children who are suffering there now?” asked little Sachar, who came from Ukraine which has been the victim of a Russian invasion since February 24, 2022.
