Kabul – Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs Melanie Jolie has asked its citizens to leave Ukraine immediately due to the growing threat from Russia and the risk of armed conflict.
“We are monitoring the situation in Ukraine and all Canadians living in Ukraine should take the necessary steps to leave the country immediately,” Ms. Melanie Jolie said. “All Canadian refrain from traveling to Ukraine.”
However, Ms. Jolie has said that her country’s diplomatic activity in Ukraine will continue, adding the activity may be severely limited.
Moreover, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine would come at a high cost.
