Francis delivered his remarks during his yearly talk, which has come to be known colloquially among diplomats accredited to the Vatican and has come to be known informally as his “state of the world.”

Francis mentioned “the war in Ukraine, with its wake of death and ruin and its attacks on civil infrastructure that cause lives to be lost not only through gunshot and acts of murder but also through hunger and freezing cold.”

As soon as he quoted from the constitution of the Vatican, which stated that “every act of war directed toward the indiscriminate destruction of whole cities or vast areas with their inhabitants is a crime against God and humanity that merits firm and unequivocal condemnation”.

He remarked, in reference to the 1962 Cuban missile crisis, “Sadly, today as well, the nuclear threat is elevated, and the world feels fear and pain once more.”
