VILNIUS, February 8 /TASS/. Lithuanian priest Visvaldas Kulbokas will be an interpreter at this Friday’s meeting between Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill and Pope Francis, BNS, the largest pan-Baltic news agency, said.
For the moment, Kulbokas, 41, is a member of the Holy See’s diplomatic service. He interpreted the pontiff’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in June 2015.
Kulbokas used to be the first secretary of the Holy See’s (Vatican’s) embassy in Moscow. He is a graduate of the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy. Only four representatives of Lithuania have undergone training in the most prestigious institution of high learning of the Roman Catholic Church.
