Exchanges of “invitations” for talks between Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky and Russian President Vladimir Putin continued.
In particular, Zelensky, answering a question from a journalist of the Italian newspaper La Repubblica, agreed that indeed “the Vatican is really the ideal place for a dialogue on peace.”
He continued: “The Holy See is a global moral authority that always acts effectively as a mediator, as it is impartial and enjoys the trust of all parties to the conflict.”
Recently, large Russian military forces have been concentrated on the border with Ukraine, worsening the already bad situation between the relations of the two countries.
First, the Ukrainian President – in a video posted publicly – suggested to Vl. Putin to meet in Donbas, a region of Ukraine that has been at war for seven years between the Ukrainian military and Kremlin-backed “separatists.”
Putin responded by inviting Zelensky to Moscow, and now Zelensky is making that counter-proposal.
