"Canada, along with its Allies and partners, will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of Ukraine for as long as it takes. In close coordination, we will apply more economic pressure on Putin’s regime until it respects Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, including in sectors that are strategically important for Russia, such as oil and gas. Canada will always stand with Ukraine and Ukrainians as they continue to defend their freedoms, independence, and democracy," Trudeau's office said.
