The Chamber also reported on the historical and critical decision for Ukraine: "By unanimous consent, the HoC adopted a motion concerning acts of genocide against the Ukrainian people."
The vote was initiated by MP Heather McPherson: she asked the House of Representatives that "the Russian Federation is committing acts of genocide against the Ukrainian people." On April 27, other lawmakers also acknowledged that they already had ample evidence of "systematic and massive war crimes against humanity" committed by the Russian military under the leadership of Russia's military leadership and Putin.
The petition consists of the following Russian war crimes against Ukrainians:
- Mass atrocities;
- Systematic cases of premeditated killings of Ukrainian civilians;
- Desecration of corpses;
- Forcible transfer of Ukrainian children;
- Physical harm;
- Mental harm;
It will be recalled that Justin Trudeau was one of the first to call Russia's policy genocide. On April 13, the prime minister of Canada said that it is correct to call Putin's actions genocide.
