The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, has reminded Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that international sanctions against Russia must be an issue principle.

Mr. Zelensky took to Twitter after his phone conversation with Mr. Trudeau on Sunday. It was their first interview since the Canadian government's controversial decision to ship repaired parts of a Russian gas pipeline to Germany.

In a short statement, he said he thanked Mr. Trudeau for Canada's generous support in the defense of his country. He also stressed the importance of maintaining sanctions against Russia.

After the terrorist attacks on Vinnytsia, Mykolaiv, Chassiv Yar, etc., the pressure must be increased, not reduced, Mr. Zelensky wrote.

The Ukrainian President had already called this absolutely unacceptable decision earlier this week.

The decision on the exception to the sanctions will be seen in Moscow exclusively as a sign of weakness. This is the logic of the Russian government, he pointed out.

On the side of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the report published by his cabinet does not mention the criticisms expressed by Mr. Zelensky. He said the two men discussed Canada's continued support for Ukraine and its efforts with like-minded partners to address the broader global repercussions of the illegal war and unjustifiable conduct by Russia.

It also indicates that the leaders discussed the importance of maintaining strong unity among allies and continuing to impose heavy costs on Russia for the illegal and unjustifiable invasion of Ukraine.< /p>

They condemned the indiscriminate and horrific attacks that Russia continues to carry out against civilians and civilian infrastructure in Ukraine.

This decision has clouded relations between the two countries.

The Liberal government has decided to exempt six Siemens Energy turbines, which were repaired in Montreal, from the economic sanctions it imposed on Russia following the invasion of the x27;Ukraine.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the decision to deliver the turbines was made so Canada could support its European allies who are facing energy crises as they that Russia is restricting access to its oil and gas supplies.

In Ottawa, opposition MPs on Friday demanded that Liberal cabinet ministers explain this controversial decision during a special meeting of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development next week.

The Liberals agreed that Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly , and Natural Resources Minister Jonathan Wilkinson respond to questions.

Two demonstrations to denounce the sending of the turbines to Europe took place on Sunday afternoon in Ottawa and Montreal.
