Clashes between protesters and police claimed at dozens of lives in Ukraine, as Pope Francis called for an end to violence in the divided country.

During the General Audience, Pope Francis called on both sides of the conflict to seek harmony and peace.

In his statement, the leader of Ukrainian Greek-Catholics also called on members to fast and pray in solidarity with the victims.
