Pope Francis' visit to Kyiv can influence the course of events concerning Russia's war against Ukraine.

The head of the Ukrainian President's Office, Andriy Yermak, said this in a Facebook post, Ukrinform reports.

Yermak recalled that the pontiff had previously addressed world leaders with a message "to end the war before it destroys humanity."

"Meanwhile, Moscow demonstrates that there is nothing sacred for them in their war against Ukraine. The Pope's personal visit to Kyiv can influence the course of events. It will further emphasize on whose side civilization is and who represents light in this war," he said.

He added that light always overcomes darkness. "And the light is Ukraine, our soldiers and our people," Yermak said.

Pope Francis said earlier that he was considering visiting the Ukrainian capital.
