Melanie Joly in Kyiv

On February 15-16, the minister of foreign affairs of Canada met with the president of Ukraine and the mayor of its capital

Immediately after Valentine's day, Canada's FA minister Melanie Joly arrived in Ukraine. On the first day of the minister's diplomatic visit, there was a meeting with president Volodymyr Zelenksyy. As the president later wrote, he had the opportunity to thank Canada, its citizens and political leadership for all military and economic assistance to Ukraine. Special thanks to the state for the help that our citizens who fled the war received in Canada.

"Further cooperation in the field of security and defence was discussed in detail. Canada's support of the Ukrainian army is invaluable in these turbulent times for us," Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Today, Melanie Joly walked around Kyiv in the company of Vitali Klitschko. The mayor showed the minister the consequences of Russian attacks aimed at the public infrastructure of Ukraine. Joly saw with her own eyes a house in the centre of Kyiv that was destroyed by Shahed on October 17. People died under the rubble.
