Why is world silent on Ukraine?

VATICAN (SE): “On both human and Christian levels, love for truth with which the apostles entrusted us prohibits us from accepting the silence which has fallen on the conflict in Ukraine and on the suffering which has befallen tens of thousands of people,” Leonardo Cardinal Sandri, from the Vatican Congregation of Eastern Churches, said during a visit to Kiev on July 7.
 
Vatican Radio reported that the cardinal agreed to go to the Ukraine as an act of solidarity with the Ukrainian Greek Catholics  in the country, whom he said are largely being ignored by the world.
 
He also visited a centre run by Caritas, which offers shelter to hundreds of children whose lives have been forever changed by the shock and trauma of war.
