On the 28th of January, during a speech in Parliament, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada, Stephane Dion, commented on the statement of his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov, who yesterday commented on “rabid Ukrainian Diaspora” and its impact on the Canadian leadership.

“We completely disagree with the invasion and intervention of the Russian government in Ukraine. We are not going to tolerate insults from the Russian Minister to the Ukrainian community in Canada. We owe the Ukrainians of Canada and will always support them,” said Dion.

As a reminder, soon after Lavrov accused the Canadian authorities of condoning Ukrainian Diaspora, the Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin thanked the same Diaspora for their support.
