Canadian PM Justin Trudeau with President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy

Today, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke with the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Prime Minister Trudeau reaffirmed Canada’s unwavering support for Ukraine as it continues to resist Russia’s brutal and unjustifiable war of aggression. As the cold of the winter months sets in, he expressed Canadians’ solidarity with Ukrainians, who are preparing for a second winter under Russian assault.

The two leaders discussed the situation on the ground, as well as Ukraine’s needs over the coming months. Prime Minister Trudeau reiterated Canada’s commitment to provide Ukraine with as much as it takes, for as long as it takes.

Prime Minister Trudeau expressed support for Ukraine’s ongoing diplomatic efforts toward a just and sustainable peace, and President Zelenskyy welcomed Canada’s co-chairing of Ukraine’s Peace Formula working group on prisoners and deported persons, including leading in the creation of an international coalition to facilitate the return of Ukrainian children who have been deported or forcibly displaced by Russia from the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. The Prime Minister reaffirmed Canada’s determination to continue advocating for Ukraine wherever and whenever possible, including at the upcoming Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Leaders’ Meeting, given the impact of Russia’s war on the region.

The two leaders reiterated their intention to remain in close and regular contact.
