Today, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke with the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The call took place following several high-level meetings in Europe last week with the European Union, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and G7 leaders, to build on Canada’s coordinated response to Russia’s illegal and unjustifiable invasion of Ukraine.
The Prime Minister and President discussed the continuing Russian military aggression and the devastating impacts to Ukraine’s people, infrastructure, and economy. Both leaders discussed next steps in terms of required support to Ukraine, to include humanitarian, financial, and military support as well as further sanctions against Russia. Prime Minister Trudeau reaffirmed Canada’s steadfast support for the territorial integrity, sovereignty, and independence of Ukraine.
President Zelenskyy thanked Prime Minister Trudeau for Canada’s ongoing assistance and the two leaders agreed to keep in close touch.
