President Volodymyr Zelenskyy had a telephone conversation with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the 30th anniversary of Canada’s recognition of Ukraine’s independence.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that our people have always felt and still feel sincere support from friendly Canada.
“This is especially important and noticeable during the last eight years, when Canada is strongly opposed to Russian aggression against Ukraine. For all those 30 years, Canada has been and remains one of our leading partners and allies” – the President said.
The head of state informed the Prime Minister of Canada about the situation on the country’s borders and noted the importance of the fact that the Chief of Staff of the Defense Forces of Canada is visiting Kyiv at this time.
Leaders were unanimous in their assessment of security threats in and around Ukraine, including the risk of destabilizing the socio-political situation. They also stressed the importance of a coordinated support of Ukraine by the international democratic community.
Zelenskyy and Trudeau have also discussed ways to further involve Canada in the Crimean Platform.
