Lukashenko: New initiatives are needed to improve the situation in eastern Ukraine

VATICAN, 21 May (BelTA) – New initiatives, especially spiritual ones, are needed to improve the current situation in eastern Ukraine, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said in an interview after the meeting with Pope Francis in the Vatican, BelTA informs.

According to the Belarusian head of state, at the meeting the Pope asked about the situation in the region, especially in connection with the conflict in Ukraine. “I have voiced my position that new initiatives, especially spiritual ones, are needed to improve the situation in eastern Ukraine,” the Belarusian leader said.

Alexander Lukashenko believes that the meeting of the Pope and the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia would contribute to the peace process. “In this case, I am ready to invite them to Belarus. I would invite European, Ukrainian, Russian, and Belarusian churchmen. They could talk to each other and then pray together with millions of believers,” the Belarusian leader said.

“I think that it would be a good initiative for the promotion of the Minsk agreement on Ukraine,” Alexander Lukashenko added.
