Green Party calls for maximum sanctions in response to invasion of Ukraine

February 24, 2022

OTTAWA – The Green Party is calling on the Canadian government to use 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 financial and other sanctions by Canada, the US and other countries but we hope that this is just the beginning.

“Putin must face increasing pressure until he realizes that such a blatant violation of international law will not 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 provide humanitarian and other non-military aid.
