About 50 people took part in the rally, among them three deputies of parliament from different parties.
"The Ukrainian Canadian Congress calls for tougher sanctions against Russia, increased military support to Ukraine, the immediate release of sailors and other Ukrainians illegally held by Russia, as well as a buildup of NATO presence in the Black and Azov Seas," said UCC CEO Ihor Michalchyshyn, who organized the rally.
