Pope Francis: NATO provoked Russia

Vita gazette – Wise warnings continue to come from the spiritual leader of the Catholic world, Pope Francis, to the parties, supporters and instigators of the war, along with intellectual messages about the Russia-Ukraine war.

Pope Frances reveals some unpublished details about the war in Ukraine in a conversation with the directors of the European cultural magazines of the Society of Jesus, gathered in an audience at the private library of the Apostolic Palace. Among them, Father Antonio Spadaro, head of La Civilta Cattolica. In the text of this speech published today, Pope Francis draws attention to the fact that in order to solve problems it is first necessary to be aware of the real problems and those responsible and to remember them.

NATO knows it is provoking Putin

Earlier, the Pope’s statements that “before the Russia-Ukraine war, NATO encouraged war by barking at Russia’s door” were reflected by the public, this time accusing claims of “NATO provoked Russia”. “The Atlantic alliance knows it is provoking Putin,” said the Pope, during a meeting with an important head of state before the war in Ukraine. He continued: “What we are seeing is the brutality and ferocity of this war, often waged by mercenaries, used by the Russians. And the Russians actually prefer to send Chechens, Syrians, and mercenaries forward. But the danger is that we only see what is terrible, and we do not see all the drama that unfolds behind this war, which perhaps was somehow provoked or not avoided”.

The arms industry also encourages war

At a time when the US, NATO and EU member states are in the running for all types of weapons in Ukraine, it acquires the Pope’s message on this theme also acquires the quality of an important and courageous declaration. Affirming that an important phenomenon that incites countries to war is the arms industry, Pope Francis said: “And the interest in testing and selling weapons. It is very sad, but it is necessary that is what is at stake”. He is humouring his opinion.

Putin is not a wolf, NATO is not Little Red Riding Hood

Affirming that it is incorrect to classify parties as good or bad and that there is a global problem with elements that are too intertwined, the Pope’s speeches include the following important passage:

“Little Red Riding Hood was good and the wolf was bad. There are no abstractly good and bad metaphysicians here. Something global emerges, with too many intertwined elements. A few months before the war started, I met a really wise head of state, a wise man who spoke little, and after talking about what he wanted to do he said he was ‘very worried about the course of NATO’, I told him. asked well, they were barking at the gates of Russia, They don’t understand what’s going on and don’t accept strangers. The power to bring them closer, this situation could lead to war, he concluded. This was his point of view. The war began on February 24th. That head of state was able to read the signs of what was happening,” he said.
