VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Pope Francis on Sunday called the conflict in Ukraine an unjustified “senseless massacre” and asked leaders to stop “this repugnant war”.

“The violent aggression against Ukraine is unfortunately not slowing down,” he told tens of thousands of people in St. Peter’s Square for his weekly Sunday address and blessing.

“It is a senseless massacre where every day slaughters and atrocities are being repeated,” he said.
