2 0


Canada is stepping back from its relations with Russia, after its President refuses to withdraw its military from the Ukraine.

Prime Minister Stephan Harper addressed the issue before a speech in Toronto.

Harper is condemning Russian military efforts, underlining that President Vladimir Putin's actions have put the country on a course of diplomatic and economic isolation. Harper says this could lead to Russia getting kicked out of the G8.

The Prime Minister says Canada won't be participating in the upcoming G8 summit Russia is hosting and has pulled its ambassador out of there.

He's also told officials to stop all talks with Russia.   

Canada will not have any government officials at the Para-Olympic Games in Sochi.

Harper spoke with the Prime Minister of Ukraine Monday, stressing Canada's support during this time.

      @john If anyone is going to gain influence in Eastern Europe, why shouldn't it be Canada? We're one of the most comfortable countries in the world to live in, clearly we're doing something right.
