Pope Francis thanks journalists for “endangering their lives to provide information”

In a tweet published on Sunday 6 March, Pope Francis expressed his gratitude to the journalists who are risking their lives to provide information, thus enabling everyone to be close to the drama of the Ukrainian people and "to assess the cruelty of a war".

A thank you that comes just three days after the approval of a new law in Russia that allows Russian and foreign citizens who spread 'false information about the armed forces' to be sentenced to up to fifteen years in prison. Because there are those who claim to call this dirty war 'a military operation'.
