Ukraine's acting prime minister has met with Pope Francis at the Vatican, but escalating Ukrainian-Russian tensions prompted him to return home instead of staying for the sainthood ceremony on Sunday.
Francis gave Yatsenyuk a fountain pen, telling him, "I hope that you write 'peace' with this pen."
Yatsenyuk replied: "I hope so, too."
