Parliament of Canada was illuminated with colors of Ukrainian flag

The bell tower of the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa was illuminated in yellow and blue in solidarity with Ukraine.

The relevant photos were posted on social network X by the Prime Minister's Office, Ukrinform reports.

"Tonight and tomorrow evening, as a sign of respect for the Ukrainian people, the Peace Tower will be illuminated in the colors of the Ukrainian flag. Two years after Russia launched its full-scale invasion, Canada's support for Ukraine remains unwavering and unequivocal," the post reads.

Usually, the lighting of the Canadian Parliament building is not used as a way to honor anything, but an exception is made for Ukraine. This is the fifth time this has happened: the Canadian parliament was already "blue and yellow" at the end of February 2022, after the start of the full-scale Russian invasion, on its first anniversary on February 24 last year, and for two years in a row on August 24, Ukraine's Independence Day.

As reported, during a visit to Kyiv on Saturday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a security agreement, which, among other things, provides for the allocation of more than 3 billion Canadian dollars in military and financial assistance to Ukraine this year.
