French President Emmanuel Macron has called on Pope Francis to call Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, head of the Russian Orthodox Church Kirill and the U.S. President Joe Biden “to advance the peace process in Ukraine,” French newspaper Le Point reported on Oct. 25.

It is necessary for the United States to join the negotiations in order to “support the peace process in Ukraine”, Macron said.

The French leader said he was convinced that the Pope can influence Biden, with whom he has a “true relationship of trust.”

Macron also called on the Russian Orthodox Church to stop supporting Russian war crimes against Ukraine.
