G7 nations, including Canada, are looking at more punitive measures against Russia as the invasion of Ukraine continues.
Canada’s Deputy Prime Minister, Chrystia Freeland, was joined two colleagues on Tuesday to update the situation.
That included the Minister of National Defence, Anita Anand, and the Minister for International Development, Harjit Sajjan.
“The free world is united in our conviction that his brutal assault on democracy, on the rules based international order, and on the people of Ukraine cannot be allowed to succeed. And we are united in our support for brave Ukraine,” stated Freeland.
More aid is expected to flow from Canada including more than $100 million in food, medical supplies, water and more ammunition.
