Pope Francis, speaking on the topic of restoration of peace on the Earth, he set the example of the negotiations between Russia and Ukraine.
He said:”Everything that can be done to stop the production of weapons, to stop the war, encourage negotiations, through intermediaries, you should always do, and it gives results.
For example, in the case of Ukraine and Russia it was not about weapons but about the exchange of prisoners, and (talks – ed.) were successful.
In the Donbas is planned a special state regime. Began and negotiations. This is a positive step.”
The Pontiff answered questions of journalists aboard the plane on the way to Rome from Japan, where he was on an Apostolic visit.
