Prime Minister Trudeau: Canada to continue to defend Ukraine's sovereignty

Canada will continue to defend Ukraine and support it in its fight against Russia, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said.

"Canada will continue to defend Ukraine's sovereignty in response to Russia's illegal annexation of Crimea as well as its support to insurgents in eastern Ukraine," he said at the Canada-Ukraine Business Forum in Toronto, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He also added that Canada would support the process of reforms in Ukraine.

“And we will continue to stand firmly beside Ukraine as you lead important reform efforts in your country, including directly supporting efforts to strengthen democracy, respect the rule of law, and encourage economic growth," Trudeau said.

According to the Canadian prime minister, this was the reason why the Canadian government made the signing of Canada-Ukraine free trade agreement a top priority.
