Pope Francis is deeply concerned about the possibility that the world may forget about Russia's war against Ukraine. Everything must be done to prevent this, according to the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGCC).

It is reported that the pontiff expressed this sentiment in a letter to the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, Sviatoslav.

Pope Francis criticized the recent mass attacks by Russian occupiers in Ukraine, resulting in the death and injury of innocent civilians. He noted that such attacks are "unworthy and unacceptable" and cannot be justified.

According to the pontiff, he considers it extremely dangerous that amid dramatic international events, there is a risk that the war in Ukraine may become a "forgotten" war.

"It is our duty to do everything so that this war is not shrouded in silence, not only to be horrified by tragic facts but, above all, to compel everyone responsible and the international community to seek peaceful solutions," emphasized Pope Francis.

He also added that he seizes every opportunity to ensure that the war in Ukraine is not forgotten.
