Kremlin says it is not aware of Pope's peace mission for Ukraine

The Kremlin said on Tuesday it knew nothing about a Vatican peace mission for Ukraine.

Pope Francis said on Sunday that the Vatican was involved in discreet efforts to try to end the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and that it was also ready to help repatriate Ukrainian children taken to Russia or Russian-occupied land.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday that Moscow had no information about the initiative.
