On his Facebook page, Yatsenyuk wrote the following:
Today in Ottawa, signed a document on the completion of the negotiation process on the creation of a free trade zone between Ukraine and Canada. This is a new page in the relations of our countries. The agreement should deepen Ukrainian-Canadian cooperation, increase bilateral investment. This is another step towards making our countries prosperous (Yatsenyuk, as it were, level Canada with Ukraine in terms of economic development - with this tirade). We highly value Canada’s position as a member of the G7 in Ukraine’s struggle against Russian aggression. I am grateful to the Head of Government of Canada, Stephen Harper, for his personal participation in supporting Ukraine - both economic and financial, and political.
And these are the words of Yatsenyuk, which are quoted by the Canadian TV channel (translation RIA News):
This is a global challenge. Ukraine has become just a battlefield. The battlefield for a bright future and against Russian aggression. We are fighting against the Russians (and this is worth paying special attention to - “VO”), and we are defending the European borders. Russia also poses a threat to Canada, and not only to Canada, but also its NATO allies.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian users of Facebook commented on the statements of Yatsenyuk as follows:
Where is the reform? Where is the lustration? Where is the fight against corruption?
Anatoly Gerasimovich (about the agreement with Canada):
Senya, this is not your merit, but the merit of the Ukrainian diaspora in Canada. And you and Avakov were like thieves, so they remained.
