The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kyiv summoned the Apostolic Ambassador to Ukraine, Monsignor Visvaldas Kolbukas, regarding Pope Francis’ recent comment on the death of Daria Dugina. This is what Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said, according to Ukrinform. “We have carefully studied the full quotation of Pope Francis – declared the head of diplomacy in Kyiv – and above all, we have decided to invite the Apostolic Ambassador to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to express Ukraine’s disappointment at his words.”
Kuleba added that the ambassador went to the ministry today and a statement in this regard will appear soon, with more details. The Minister of Foreign Affairs indicated that the recall of the ambassador is an unprecedented situation and as such speaks for itself. “Secondly – he added – I will say frankly that the words of the Pope broke the Ukrainian heart. It was unfair.”
On August 20, a car carrying Daria Dugina, the daughter of Alexander Dugin, the main theorist of the concept “Russian World”, exploded in the suburbs of Moscow, killing her.
“I think of the poor girl who was detonated by a bomb under the car seat in Moscow – said Pope Francis, referring to the death of Daria Dugina – innocents pay the price for war, innocents! And those who win by war and arms trade are criminals who kill humanity.”
