The heads of government of the three countries spoke in support of Ukrainians in the war against Russia.
The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson has published a joint video address to Ukrainians, recorded with the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau and the Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte.
The corresponding video was published by Johnson on March 7.
“This is a critical moment and we are facing the Ukrainian people in the face of aggression, which (the people – ed.) Is suffering in the hands of Vladimir Putin’s war machine,” said the head of the British government.
“We are united in our continued opposition to Russian aggression against Ukraine, and we note the unity of 141 states that condemn these illegal actions at the UN,” said the Canadian prime minister.
“And we are also working closely together to coordinate humanitarian aid, military defense assistance, and, of course, a strong package of sanctions. And if we need more, we will do more“, – assured the Prime Minister of the Netherlands.
Johnson added that states share a common view.
“We believe in freedom, we believe in democracy and we believe that Ukraine should be a free, independent and sovereign state. We are together with Ukraine“, – said the British Prime Minister.
It will be recalled that the prime ministers of Britain, Canada and the Netherlands met in London on March 7 and said that it was the courage of the Ukrainian resistance that inspired them to further strengthen sanctions against Russia.
