The Vatican did not summon the ambassador and did not criticize "religious laws" - Ukrainian Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson

The Vatican did not criticize the so-called "religious laws" and did not summon Ambassador Tatiana Izhevska.


"The information about the summoning of the ambassador is not true. No one summoned her. She had a series of work meetings at the State Secretariat of the Vatican, which various issues of internal and foreign policy were discussed, including these bills," - said Ukrainian Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Mariana Betsa.


"There was no criticism on the part of the Vatican" - said Betsa.


It is known that the Russian media circulated a statement of Archpriest Mykola Danylevych that Ukraine's ambassador was summoned to the Pope about "religious laws" and expressed concern about them.
