An impassioned speech by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Parliament, as he told a packed
House of Commons, ”Life and justice must prevail.”
While once again calling on Canada and other western allies to continue supporting Ukraine, he suggested there was only one possible outcome.
”This Russian aggression must end with our victory. Yes. (applause) Yes. (longer applause) So that Russia will never bring back genocide to Ukraine, and will never ever try to do so. Moscow must lose, once and for all.”
In his remarks, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Putin thought he’d make quick work of marching on Kyiv. Putin thought President Zelensky would cave.
”But sir, you have not. You have galvanized the world. You have made the bonds between democratic allies and friends stronger than ever,” said the prime minister.
Trudeau also announced another $650-million in military aid over three-years for 50 armoured vehicles, including medical evacuation vehicles that’ll be built in London, Ontario.
The government will also send F-16 trainers for pilots and for maintenance so Ukrainians are able to maximize their use of donated fighter jets.
Zelensky will be in Toronto Friday evening for a private event before flying back home.
