Russian Communist MP Pavel Dorokhin stated that he presented St. George ribbon to the Pope of Rome, reported RIA Novosti agency.

"Yesterday I had an opportunity to attend the general audience of Pope Francis at St. Peter's Square in Vatican. They put me on the first place in the lodge for the honored guests, and I think it is no coincidence. I told the Pope that in five days we have a great holiday - Victory Day, presented him a commemorative medal for the 70th anniversary of the Victory. Also I said that our people have paid 26 million souls for it, asked the Pope to be together with our people and put on St. George ribbon to show solidarity. He put it on the robe and the conversation continued, "- Russian MP said.

"I also handed him a magazine with a photo of Patriarch Kirill and said that we are glad to their recent historic meeting. The Pope gave blessings to our country through me ", - he added.
