Canada condemns illegitimate elections in Russian-occupied Ukraine


November 13, 2018 – Ottawa, Ontario – Global Affairs Canada

Global Affairs Canada today issued the following statement on illegitimate elections held in regions of Ukraine:

“Canada joins its European allies and the United States in unreservedly rejecting the illegitimate and illegal November 11, 2018, elections in Russian-occupied eastern Ukraine.

“These ‘elections’ are an attempt to validate the rule of Moscow-imposed Russian proxies. In the absence of a recognized legal basis or any credible international monitoring, the international community will not recognize these ‘elections.’

“Canadians continue to stand steadfastly with the people of Ukraine.”
