Pope Francis may pay a visit to Ukraine in the near future.

This was announced by the leader of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, His Beatitude Sviatoslav Shevchuk, who spoke at the Kyiv Security Forum on December 1, the KSF press service told Ukrinform.

"A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to personally talk with Pope Francis about Ukraine. He is very concerned about the fate of ordinary people, the people who may not be fully heard today," the top cleric said.
