While politicians discuss and develop approaches on the conflict in Ukraine, people become consumable material, stated Pope Francis during his speech to UN General Assembly, Vidia.

"Not only in cases of persecution for religious or cultural reasons, but also in situations of conflict in Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, Libya, South Sudan, and the Great Lakes region, first of all, it's not about the interests of any party, even the law, but the people. In wars and conflicts, there is the people, our brothers and sisters, men and women, youth and the elderly, children, who cry, suffer and die. At that time, when we enumerate the problems, develop strategies, and discuss, people become consumable material", he said.

Also the Pope called on all countries to peace, nuclear disarmament, and fight against climate change.
