In an amazing feat of verbal gymnastics, when cornered in an interview about his refusal to name Russia or Putin as the aggressor in Ukraine, Pope Francis admitted that the Russian State had invaded Ukraine, but cast the blame on the indigenous peoples of Russia. He also avoided naming Putin as the culprit. You can read his real words here: “Forced to Admit that the Russian State Invaded Ukraine, Pope Francis Blames the Poor Indigenous Peoples of Russia Conscripted by Putin for Atrocities in Ukrainehttps://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2022/11/29/forced-to-admit-that-the-russian-state-invaded-ukraine-pope-francis-blames-the-poor-indigenous-peoples-of-russia-conscripted-by-putin-for-atrocities-in-ukraine/
Pope Francis simply opened himself up to criticism by all sides, including the Russian Gov, in his apparent attempt to appease Putin: “‘Racist’ interview with Pope Francis causes fury in Russia: Francis says Chechen and Buryat minorities in Russia’s army more cruel in Ukraine than other soldiers” Pjotr Sauer Tue 29 Nov 2022 09.54 EST https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/nov/29/interview-pope-francis-fury-russia

Russia has “destroyed a huge number of peoples, languages, cultures, and traditions. They are just barbarians. And when you say that we should sit down at the table with these barbarians and talk about something, I generally think that it will be inappropriate,” Danilov emphasized. He also noted that the dictators Hitler and Putin are similar, and that Russia constantly stole someone else’s history. “I consider Hitler and Putin to be Siamese twins… they are similar people. Look, the person who makes the decision that it is necessary to bomb the civilian population, torture them, kill innocent children and it is not about one or ten, it is hundreds of children who died in this war just because someone in the Kremlin wanted to gain some advantage. We are different, we have nothing to do with you. You are Muscovy, which was only on its territory, you are thieves who constantly stole someone’s history. You constantly demand something, but you are not at all worthy of anyone in the world communicating with you,” the Secretary of the Security Council emphasized…“ Excerpted from: https://www.ukrinform.net/rubric-polytics/3625621-russia-must-cease-to-exist-in-its-current-form-danilov.html

Biden “added that he does not intend to speak to Putin any time soon, but he would be willing to if Putin is genuinely interested in ending the war. “If that’s the case, in consultation with my French and my NATO friends, I’ll be happy to sit down with Putin to see what he has in mind. He hasn’t done that yet. In the meantime, I think it’s absolutely critical, what Emmanuel said: we must support the Ukrainian people,” Biden said. He added that there was only one rational way to end the war in Ukraine – for Russia to withdraw its troops…” Excerpt from: https://www.ukrinform.net/rubric-polytics/3626025-biden-ready-to-talk-to-putin-to-end-war.html
