Pope Francis Says Russia Is Needed to Solve World Problems

Pope Francis has said Russia plays a crucial role in solving the world's problems, a TASS news agency report said.

“Without Russia, not one of today's most pressing global problems can be solved,” the pontiff was cited Tuesday as telling a TASS reporter aboard a flight to Cuba.

The pontiff continued his journey on Tuesday to the United States, where he is set to address the UN General Assembly on Friday, the report said.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
