Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall made the following statement on the violence in Ukraine today:
I am troubled and appalled by the violent and brutal acts the world has witnessed in recent days in Ukraine. My condolences go out to families of those who were killed; and, my thoughts and prayers are with those who have been injured as a result of these violent acts.
My colleagues and I stand in support of a free and democratic Ukraine, where freedom of expression and the rule of law are guaranteed. We join with so many others around the world in calling for dialogue between the government and the opposition to resolve this matter peacefully.
We continue to support the efforts of the Government of Canada, the Ukrainian Canadian Congress and the Ukrainian community as they work in assisting and supporting a resolution to this conflict.
