Pope Francis Prays For Peace In Ukraine On Ash Wednesday
Pope Francis has dedicated the first day of Lent, Ash Wednesday, to pray for the end of the ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia.

Pope Francis in a tweet on March 2, urged all to pray and fast for peace in Ukraine. He shared an infographic that contained his prayer for Ukraine.

He prayed that God Almighty hears the prayer of his servants and “open our eyes and our hearts and give us the courage to say ‘Never again war!”

According to the Pope, the contention between Ukraine and Russia must be condemned by all because “with war, everything is lost.”

He pointed out that to attain peace, the path leading to dialogue and reconciliation must be chartered.

“Instill in our hearts the courage to take concrete steps to achieve peace. Keep alive within us the flame of hope so that with patience and perseverance, we may opt for dialogue and reconciliation. In this way may peace triumph at last. Amen,” he prayed.

Earlier, Pope Francis indicated that the prayers said for Ukraine today will enable persons to be “near to the suffering Ukrainian people,” and “to be aware that we are all brothers and sisters”.

US President Joe Biden has told Congress that Russian President Vladimir Putin badly misjudged how the West would hit back once he invaded Ukraine.

“Putin’s war was premeditated and unprovoked. He rejected repeated efforts at diplomacy,” Biden said in an hour-long address to lawmakers on Tuesday night.

There have been reports that foreign students attempting to leave Ukraine are experiencing racist treatment by Ukrainian security forces and border officials.

Russia Cuts Off Gas Supplies To Bulgaria And Poland

The Russian energy giant Gazprom says it has cut off all gas deliveries to both Bulgaria and Poland after both countries refused to start paying for the supplies in roubles.

Earlier, both Polish and Bulgarian energy providers said they had received official notices from the Russian gas supplier that deliveries were due to be cut.

Gazprom’s announcement comes after some confusion earlier this morning, when data showed gas supplies into Poland through Belarus temporarily reduced to zero before resuming.

JUST IN: Ghana Records Two New Cases Of Omicron COVID-19 Variant

 

BA.2, the new Omicron variant that led to a surge of new COVID-19 cases in Europe, has now overtaken the U.S. as the most dominant version of the virus throughout the country. This latest data estimate is from a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, whose director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, predicted that BA.2 would quickly become dominate in the U.S

The first case of the BA.2 was initially identified in the U.S. back in December. Meanwhile, scientists have been closely watching BA.2—which is now the third of the genetically distinct varieties of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

The rapid growth of BA.2 is due partially to its eight gene mutations that spike protein on the virus’s surface, something that is not found in the previous strain, BA.1.

Although BA.2 is more transmissible than BA.1, as of now there are no signs that it causes more severe illness and it’s shown that vaccines continue to protect against the worst outcomes.
