Pope says wants to go to Moscow to meet Putin over Ukraine

In an interview released on Tuesday, Pope Francis stated that he requested a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow to attempt to end the conflict in Ukraine but has yet to get a response.

The pope also told Italy’s Corriere Della Sera daily that Russian Orthodox Church Patriarch Kirill, who has supported the conflict, “cannot become Putin’s altar boy.”
