The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Canada has condemned the Russian attack on Ukraine on December 29 using rockets and drones, which became the most extensive since the start of the full-scale war, according to the Canadian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

"Canada strongly condemns the missile and drone attacks by Russia against multiple Ukrainian cities, including Kyiv. We stand with Ukraine and condemn Putin’s illegal invasion," the statement reads.

Despite being geographically distant from our country, Canada has supported Ukrainians in the aggressive war initiated by the Russian Federation.

Ottawa has provided military, financial, humanitarian, and political support to Ukraine and has backed sanctions against Russia. In May 2022, after the liberation of the north, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited Kyiv as a sign of solidarity and support.

In total, 158 enemy targets were detected in the airspace. Ukrainian air defense forces managed to shoot down 114 targets, including 27 Shahed drones and 87 cruise missiles X-101/X-555/X-55.
