Dumenko said that the OCU is positive about the arrival of the Pope, while "the enemy opposes everything that is useful for Ukraine".

The OCU welcomes the possible visit of the head of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis, to Ukraine. This was announced by the head of the organization, Epiphany Dumenko, reports RISU.

“We are in a positive mood, because why we should resist when Christians should, on the contrary, unite in love, meet, communicate, and not be at enmity,” Dumenko said.

He noted that during the visit to Ukraine of the previous Roman pontiff, John Paul II, “only the Moscow Patriarchate opposed it, and “now we also live in such realities when the enemy opposes <...> everything that is useful for Ukraine”.

Dumenko also spoke about what Patriarch Bartholomew will do during his visit to Ukraine.

Earlier, the UOJ wrote that Vladimir Zelensky again invited Pope Francis to come to Ukraine and said that the Ukrainian people are looking forward to his visit.
