Self-defense is not only legal, but also an expression of patriotism. He who does not defend himself and does not defend something he does not like. Those who defend something they love, Francis said.

The Pope then made his point of view when supplying arms to a country is moral and when it is not. It may be immoral if the intent is to provoke more war or to sell or give away weapons that (the state) no longer needs. Motivation is what largely determines the ethics of this move, Pope said.

Asked whether Ukraine should negotiate with the country that attacked it, the Pope said that dialogue with countries that started a war is always difficult, but it should not be excluded. I will not rule out dialogue with any power at war, even if it is with the aggressor. Sometimes you have to have this dialogue. You don’t smell it but you have to do it František stressed.
