Rallies of solidarity with Ukraine take place in Canada, US, EU, Brazil
As the threat of a Russian escalation against Ukraine remains, rallies of solidarity with Ukraine keep taking place in various countries worldwide. This weekend, a wave of protests took place in Canada.

Members of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) rallied across Canada on 6 February with the support of its allies to bring awareness of Ukraine’s fight against a potential Russian invasion, Toronto Star reports. The rallies were part of the UCC #StandWithUkraine initiative.

Calgary Sun added that the UCC is urging the Canadian government to help Ukraine by

  • supporting the acceleration of Ukraine’s membership in NATO,
  • increasing sanctions on Russia to deter further aggression,
  • ensuring that the Nord Stream 2 pipeline never becomes operational,
  • increasing the provision of military equipment and defensive weapons to Ukraine.

Earlier the Canadian government decided not to send weapons to Ukraine. However, Canada had sent non-lethal military aid to Ukraine, the latest shipment of which came on February 3, the Canadian Ministry of National Defence reported on 5 February. This equipment includes “personal protective and load carriage equipment, as well as surveillance and detection equipment.”
