Ukraine-related questions will remain among the essential ones on the agenda of the G7, while Canada assumes leadership in this group. Christine Freeland, Canadian Foreign Minister said that at a briefing during her visit in Kyiv.

‘This visit to Ukraine gives me an opportunity to confer with Ukrainians about the ways that Canada could assist Ukraine next year,’ she said.

Ukraine’s foreign minister Pavlo Klimkin added that Ukraine expects Canada to increase pressure on Russia and to approve lethal arms supplies.  

Previously, Christine Freeland met with Ukrainian leader Petro Poroshenko. Both sides negotiated on Donbas-related issues; specifically, they agreed that Russia intends to undermine the implementation of Minsk agreements.

Poroshenko recognized Ottawa’s part in promoting the Crimean resolution approved by the UN General Assembly. He also urged Canada to contribute to the group of countries supporting the de-occupation of Crimea.
