Canada should support Ukraine’s efforts to create an international platform to bring about the de-occupation of Crimea by the Russian state.

Candidate for Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada Chris Alexander said this in his electoral programme.

"As Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada and Prime Minister of Canada I would deploy Canada’s good offices in support of the government of Ukraine’s efforts to create an international platform to bring about the de-occupation of Crimea by the Russian state, the full resumption of Ukrainian control, and an end to systematic human rights violations in Crimea by Russia, particularly against members of the Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar minorities," the document reads.

In addition, Chris Alexander said that he would maintain Ukraine as a country of focus for Canadian international assistance, while fully implementing the Canada-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement. "I would launch a large-scale strategic partnership with Ukraine to support market-based reforms, public sector transformation, effective justice institutions and further integration into European/Euro-Atlantic institutions and the wider global economy," the document says.
