“I spoke with Justin Trudeau. I thanked him for his leadership in imposing anti-Russian sanctions. I pointed out that we need him to extend the restrictive measures. The bombardment of civilians in Ukraine must stop immediately”, briefly described the Ukrainian president on Twitter on Wednesday evening.

“Volodymyr, Canada and the world stand with you – and demand an immediate end to President Putin’s unlawful attacks that have caused civilian deaths,” Prime Minister Trudeau commented on his own Twitter account.

The latter hinted that other sanctions could be announced soon against Russia, following discussions with Canada’s “allies and partners”.

For its part, the Prime Minister’s Office indicated that the two leaders “discussed the measures that Canada could take to continue to support Ukraine in the immediate future”.

“President Zelenskyy thanked Prime Minister Trudeau for announcing concrete and punitive sanctions against Russian banks and oligarchs who are directly responsible for or who support this unprovoked invasion. The president also praised the speed with which Canada announced additional military support,” assured Mr. Trudeau’s cabinet.
