Russia may target civilians after Vatican envoy is set on fire

A Vatican envoy and his aides narrowly escaped after reportedly coming under fire during a humanitarian mission in Ukraine – evidence British officials allege Russia is ready to expand attacks on innocent civilians.

Vatican almoner Cardinal Konrad Krzewski said he “didn’t know where to run” during Saturday’s horrific incident near the city of Zaporizhzhya. Vatican New reported. No one was reported to be injured.

“For the first time in my life, I didn’t know where to run. Because it’s not enough to run, you have to know where to go,” the Polish-born cardinal told the Vatican news service.

Krzewski is in Ukraine for the fourth time since Russian forces launched an invasion of Ukraine in February. He was accompanied by two bishops – one Catholic, one Protestant – and a Ukrainian soldier to provide aid and rosary, the news service said.

Russian blasts hit a large part of Ukraine overnight, officials said on Sunday, after the British Defense Ministry recently issued a dire warning about Moscow’s eye on civilian targets.

“Over the past seven days, Russia has increased its target of civilian infrastructure, even where it probably considers no immediate military impact,” the ministry said in an online briefing.

“As the front lines face setbacks, Russia has likely expanded the places it is prepared to strike in an attempt to directly undermine the morale of the Ukrainian people and government.”
