Yevhen Perelygin, the Ukrainian Ambassador to Italy, hopes that at the meeting with the Russian President Vladimir Putin Pope Francis will point at his hypocrisy. The Ambassador told it the Italian news agency ANSA, Joinfo.ua reports.
He hopes that during his meeting with Vladimir Putin, Pope Francis "will repeat what he said recently in Sarajevo: the one who is talking about peace while conducting war is a hypocrite."
In particular, the Pope said that "everyone is able to talk about peace, even in insidious hypocritical manner, however, the present peacekeeping lies in "creating peace."
In addition, Yevhen Perelygin expects that "the Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi will get out the message of the G7 leaders to Vladimir Putin".
"Violation of the world order is acceptable neither with Kalashnikovs nor with nuclear weapons," said Perelygin.
He also called for maintaining the sanctions.
"Russia still does not realize the consequences of its aggressive actions. Extension of sanctions would be the right decision," said the Ambassador.
Earlier, the German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that the new sanctions against Russia might be toughened if the situation in the east of Ukraine worsened.
