At a meeting with Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko, Pope Francis accepted his invitation to visit Ukraine.

“A very touching meeting with Pope Francis. He assured me he never forgets about Ukraine and prays for peace in our country. I asked the Pope to complete beatification of Metropolitan Andriy Sheptitsky, as well as initiate the same procedure for Bishop Stepan Chmil, who was the Pope’s spiritual advisor in Argentine. I invited His Holiness to visit Ukraine and He gracefully accepted my invitation,” writes Poroshenko in his Facebook account.
