Earlier Zelensky during an audience with Pope Francis invited the pontiff to Ukraine.

Zelensky noted that people expect to see Pope in Ukraine.

“I invited him to Ukraine. I’m sure that he will visit Ukraine - not only the capital. I said that in order to fully understand what is happening in our east, we need to go to the east,” summed up Volodymyr Zelensky.

The President also noted the important role that the Holy See could play in bringing peace to Ukrainian soil.

"The main thing we talked about is peace. He even called me the "president of peace" - this is my image in Europe now," Zelensky said after the audience.
