The leaders condemned Russia’s ongoing war of aggression against Ukraine and reiterated their shared commitment to standing with Ukraine for as long as it takes. They underlined the importance of global solidarity in support of a just and sustainable peace in Ukraine, and Prime Minister Trudeau commended the EU’s endorsement of using extraordinary revenues generated by immobilized Russian Central Bank assets to support Ukraine.

Prime Minister Trudeau and President von der Leyen looked forward to seeing each other next week in Italy for the G7 Summit, and in Switzerland for the Summit on Peace in Ukraine.
