The European Union and Canada vowed joint support for Ukraine and pledged to work toward achieving a lasting and just peace for the nation.

That’s according to a joint statement signed following the Canada-EU summit, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Our support to Ukraine is steadfast. We share an unequivocal condemnation of Russia’s ongoing war of aggression and our unwavering commitment to Ukraine including a just and sustainable peace based on international law, Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognised borders," the statement says.

"We will stand with Ukraine for as long as it takes, will work to address Ukraine’s immediate military and defence needs and ensure Ukraine has the long-term security commitments needed, while it pursues its Euro-Atlantic integration," the statement reads.
