Liberal Statement: Actions by the Russian Federation are a violation of Ukrainian sovereignty

Posted on August 22, 2014

OTTAWA – Liberal critic for Foreign Affairs Marc Garneau and critic for International Trade Chrystia Freeland today issued the following statement in reaction to a convoy of Russian trucks entering Ukraine without authorization:

“Today, Russian vehicles entered Ukrainian territory without authorization from the government of Ukraine under the pretext of delivering humanitarian assistance. The Liberal Party of Canada condemns in the strongest terms this provocative violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty.

“The actions by the Russian Federation not only violate Ukrainian sovereignty, they constitute yet another escalation of tension in the region. Russia has clearly demonstrated, since it first entered Crimea that it intends to continue destabilizing the sovereign state of Ukraine.”

“Russia must withdraw these vehicles immediately, and cease its continued provocative and destabilizing interference against the people of Ukraine.”

TORONTO – Liberal MPs Chrystia Freeland (Toronto Centre) and Adam Vaughan (Trinity-Spadina), today issued a statement on the detention of University of Toronto student Alexander Sodiqov:

“We remain concerned about the fate of Alexander Sodiqov, a University of Toronto student recently released from prison by the security services in Tajikistan. He was detained last month while conducting legitimate academic research supported by the University of Exeter. Alexander is still not permitted to leave Tajikistan.”

His colleagues, his neighbours and the academic community at the University of Toronto are following this case closely and are eagerly awaiting his return to his studies.”
