Pope Says Stop the Spiral.Alessandra Tarantino AP

Pope Francis spoke with unusual frankness yesterday after the Angelus, telling Vladimir Putin to “stop this spiral of violence and death” in Ukraine, where his botched invasion is failing so badly that he threatens to use nuclear warheads so he can feel powerful again. Francis also called on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky “to be open to serious proposals of peace.″ The Pope used the two presidents’ titles, not their names, but diplomats said singling them out specifically shows how anguished he is about the war.
