Ottawa expressed concern over the violation of human rights in the Russian-occupied Crimea. The government of Canada issued a statement urging the international community to put pressure on Russia for its aggression against Ukraine. The document, loosely based on yesterday's statement by Canadian Foreign Minister Christine Freeland, was released on March 16, Radio Liberty reports.

‘Since the moment of Crimea’s occupation, we’ve been witnessing numerous violations of human rights, including freedom of speech and assembly. Canada decisively supports people in Ukraine. The international community should jointly put pressure, including the economic sanctions, until Russia begins to respect Ukraine’s sovereignty and the international law,’ reads the message.
