President of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress Paul Grod and Vice President of the UCC Alexandra Chyczij said this in the Christmas greetings.
"For four years our brothers and sisters in Ukraine bravely defend their homeland from brutal Russian aggression. They have persevered while putting their country on the path to reform and prosperity. They need our continued support and we will continue to provide it," Chyczij said.
In turn, Paul Grod stresses that the Ukrainian community remains an influential political force in Canada. "Under the leadership of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress, our community in Canada ensures that support for Ukraine remains at the forefront in Canada's foreign policy," the UCC president said.
He recalls that this year Canada–Ukraine relations made significant progress. "This year, the UNIFIER, Canada's military training mission to Ukraine, was extended. In addition, Canada and Ukraine signed a defense cooperation arrangement. The "Magnitsky Act" and the Free Trade Agreement were also passed," he said.
