Canadian policy continues not to recognize the occupation of Crimea by Russia and condemns the illegal actions of Russia in Ukraine, an Ukrinform correspondent learnt from Canadian Foreign Ministry spokesman Austin Jean.
"Canada condemns violations by Russia of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and remains steadfast in its position of non-recognition of the illegal occupation of Crimea," he said.
He stressed that Canada regularly calls on Russia to respect the sovereignty of Ukraine. "Canada considers Crimea an integral part of Ukraine and continues to call on Russia, including within the OSCE and other multilateral arenas, to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine," the Foreign Ministry spokesman said.
