This issue was raised in the meeting between Metropolitan of Volokolamsk Hilarion, the head of the Synodal Department for External Church Relations, and Archbishop Celestino Migliore, Apostolic Nuncio to Russia, the communication service of the synodal department said.

“They agreed that the Churches should act as peace mediators between the conflicting sides rather than side with a particular party to the conflict,” the report said.

During the meeting, Metropolitan Hilarion expressed appreciation of the well-considered stance taken by Pope Francis and the Vatican on the situation in Ukraine.
