President of the Italian Episcopal Conference, Cardinal Matteo Zuppi has expressed his desire to visit Ukraine in the near future.

"I greatly appreciate everything you are doing. You are a true friend of Ukraine, and I hope that under your leadership, we will be able to bring many children back to Ukraine," Yermak said.

He also noted that an international coalition to return Ukrainian children illegally deported to Russia was initiated at the third national security advisors' meeting held in Malta.
