Canada recalls ambassador to Russia over Ukraine
Canada recalled its ambassador to Russia and pulled out of preparation talks for the G8 summit in protest at Moscow’s belligerence over developments in Ukraine, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said late Saturday.
“We join our allies in condemning in the strongest terms President Putin’s military intervention in Ukraine,” Mr. Harper said in a statement.
“The Canadian ambassador in Moscow is being recalled for consultations,” he said.
“We will continue to cooperate closely with our G7 partners and other allies. Should President Putin continue on this course of action, it will lead to ongoing negative consequences for our bilateral relationship.”
