Chrystia Freeland, the Foreign Minister of Canada and Federica Mogherini, the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy discussed the current issues, including the situations in Myanmar, Ukraine, and Iran as the Foreign Ministry of Canada reported on Twitter.
"Minister Freeland met with Federica Mogherini to talk global peace and security and the rules-based international order. They discussed plans for the September Women Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, as well as ongoing international issues, including situations in Myanmar, Ukraine, and Iran," the message said.
Earlier Freeland urged Russia to release Ukrainian movie maker Oleg Sentsov.
On June 22, Ukraine officially asked the ECHR to allow the Ukrainian ombudswoman to visit Sentsov.
Earlier Russian ombudswoman Tatiana Moskalkova claimed that the Ukrainian filmmaker refused to meet the doctors chosen by his advocate and relatives. She intends to visit him personally in the near time. On June 25, the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia indicates political prisoner Oleg Sentsov as the citizen of Ukraine.
On June 26, Council of Europe Secretary General Thurbjørn Jagland has officially filed for the pardon of Ukrainian director Oleg Sentsov to Russian President Vladimir Putin. However, Kremlin responded that this letter cannot be a ground for the release of Sentsov.
Ukrainian political prisoner Oleg Sentsov has announced a hunger strike on May 14. This way, he demands that all Ukrainians detained in Russia and annexed Crimea be released. Sentsov said he was ready to die if the requirements were not fulfilled.
