President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy had a phone conversation with Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau

The Head of State thanked for Canada's consistent position on the impossibility of Russia’s return to the G7 in light of the ongoing aggression in Donbas and occupation of Crimea. The President believes that in a situation where Ukrainians are still being killed, it is necessary not to return Russia to the G7, but to force it to fulfill its obligations.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked Justin Trudeau for his willingness to adhere to the same principled position regarding the inadmissibility of the Russian Federation's return to the G7, which he demonstrated during last year's G7 summit in Canada.

The President of Ukraine and the Prime Minister of Canada have agreed to continue the discussion of the issue of counteracting Russia's aggressive policy and protecting Ukraine's interests after the G7 summit in France.
