OTTAWA – The Green Party is asking on the Canadian government to make use of every available non-violent tool to punish and isolate Russia for its criminal decision to attack Ukraine.
“This lawless aggression must not stand,” said interim Leader Amita Kuttner. “We welcome today’s announcements of economic and other sanctions by Canada, the US and other countries but we hope that that is just the start.
“Putin must face increasing pressure until he realizes that such a blatant violation of international law won’t go unpunished. Putin’s aggression makes the unthinkable real. We must pursue all avenues to press for global nuclear disarmament.”
The Green Party stands with the people of Ukraine during this dark time and wholeheartedly supports all Canadian initiatives to offer humanitarian and other non-military aid.
