Thus, during his speech in front of the Canadians of Ukrainian descent, the Minister of Immigration Chris Alexander called Vladimir Putin a "terrorist," Joinfo.ua reports with reference to National Post.
In addition, it is already far not the first time he criticizes the actions of the Russian Federation in Ukraine.
"Yes, there is terrorism. Vladimir Putin is behaving like a terrorist," said the Canadian politician.
Alexander also noted that "there is no scenario that would lead to world peace and prosperity of whole Europe and which would not include active international efforts to provide Ukraine everything it needs to withdraw Russian forces from its borders and protect them."
The Russian Embassy did not remain silent, so as a result there was a skirmish in social networks between Alexander and a representative of the Russian Federation in Canada.
On its Twitter page, the Russian Embassy in Ottawa decided to boast its erudition and stated that Alexander's speech looked like Orwellian "five minutes of hate". "Hardly the artwork of diplomacy."
The Minister responded to the statement by the Russians as follows: "Your invasion of Ukraine brought 14 months of death. How many more "Anschluss" does Putin have planned? "
