Pope Francis condemns ‘inhuman, sacrilegious’ war against Ukraine

Pope Francis on Sunday sharpened his rhetoric against Russia’s shelling of Ukrainian civilians in its increasingly brutal invasion.

“All this is inhuman!” Francis said, according to the Holy See’s media portal.

“Indeed, it is also sacrilegious,” he continued, “because it goes against the sacredness of human life, especially against defenseless human life, which must be respected and protected, not eliminated, and which comes before any strategy! Let us not forget: It is a cruelty, inhuman and sacrilegious.”
