Canada condemned Russia for multiple violations of the international law and aggressive behavior, yet it did not recognize Putin as a war criminal, as the press office of the Canadian Foreign Ministry reported.

“Canada is deeply concerned by Russian actions that undermine the rules-based international order. The Minister of Foreign Affairs has repeatedly spoken against Russian actions that disrespect and challenge acceptable global norms,” the message says.

“Canada will continue to work with our partners to address Russia’s ongoing violations of its international legal obligations and commitments,” Freeland stated.

“Our support for the people of Ukraine remains strong, and Canada will continue to contribute to efforts in support of Ukraine, including by hosting the third Ukraine Reform Conference in 2019,” the document says.
