(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis issued a heartfelt appeal on Sunday for Ukraine saying, “ I am following with deep concern the escalation of the fighting in eastern Ukraine, which continues to cause many casualties among the civilian population. As I assure you of my prayers for all who suffer, I renew a heartfelt appeal for a resumption  in dialogue and an end to all hostilities.”

The Holy Father made the appeal following the recitation of the Marian prayer from his studio above St Peter’s Square.
