Canada will partially renew its contacts with Russia, but promises to continue supporting the official Kyiv. This was stated by the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau during the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington.
"Our position is clear and unbreakable: we are against the illegal and illegitimate territorial expansion made by Russia to Ukraine and we support our Ukrainian friends. Yes, we said that we will begin to contact with Russian Federation on a number of issues, ranging from the Arctic and other issues, but during these contacts at every opportunity we will clearly state that we are determined in our support for Ukraine and will insist on this position, "- Justin Trudeau said.
Earlier, Foreign Minister of Canada Stefan Dion said that his country was in favor of preserving and strengthening sanctions against Russia.
