Ukraine can count on Canada's support in countering Russian aggression.

“I have assured Minister Dmytro Kuleba that the Ukrainian people can count on Canada's unwavering support,” Joly wrote on Twitter.

It should be recalled that on January 8, 2020, a UIA plane, flight PS752 (Tehran-Kyiv) was shot down shortly after taking off the Iranian capital’s airport. All crew and passengers, a total of 176 people, citizens of Ukraine, Canada, Sweden, Iran, Afghanistan, and the United Kingdom were killed in the crash.

On January 11, the Iranian authorities, after a few days of denying involvement in the jet crash, admitted that the Ukrainian airliner had been “mistakenly” shot down by an anti-aircraft missile system.

On November 22, 2021, the military court of Iran launched hearings of the case.

As reported, Ukrainian President’s Office chief Andriy Yermak spoke with White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan.

The parties discussed common concerns about Russia's continued military activity near the Ukrainian border and its harsh rhetoric targeting Ukraine.
