Zelensky tells Canadian parliament that Russia is committing genocide
President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine praised Canada for its role in equipping Ukraine with weapons and training soldiers.
What the Russian occupiers are doing to Ukraine is genocide. And if we want to win, if we call on the world to support us, it is not just about an ordinary conflict, but about saving the lives of millions of people. Literally: physical salvation. Ordinary women and men, children, our families, entire communities, entire cities. The Russian destruction of Mariupol or Volnovacha, or Bakhmut or any other city or village in Ukraine, must not go unpunished. Thanks to Canadian support for Ukraine with weapons and equipment, we have been able to save thousands and thousands of lives. This includes air defense systems, armored vehicles, artillery shells and very significant mine clearance assistance. Thank you so much. Canada’s leadership on sanctions against Russia over this war and terror has truly encouraged others around the world to follow your lead. And I am especially grateful for your extremely strong 100 percent leadership support for the Ukrainian movement for NATO. Because of your strong participation in the training of our soldiers – it is very important – it is already a tradition that Canada trained those who defend the world. Thousands? Yes.
