Ukraine: Imperialism has nothing to do with God - pope

Francis launches appeal for 'conversion'

(ANSA) - ROME, JUN 30 - Imperialism has nothing to do with God, Pope Francis said on Russia's invasion of Ukraine Thursday.
    Receiving a delegation from the Ecumenical Orthodox Patriarchate of Constantinople, Francis said "there is a need for conversion to understand that armed conquests, expansions and imperialisms have nothing to do with the Kingdom that Jesus announced, with the Lord of Easter who in Gethsemane asked his disciples to renounce violence, to put their swords back because all those who live by the sword will die of the sword."
