Canadian Parliament has unanimously recognized Russiaʼs crimes in Ukraine as genocide
The House of Commons of the Canadian Parliament unanimously approved a proposal to recognize Russian aggression in Ukraine as an act of genocide.
The motion was put forward by the New Democratic Party MP Heather McPherson. The ruling says the killing of civilians, the desecration of corpses, the forced removal of Ukrainian children to Russia, and the torture and rape of Russian soldiers are genocide.
The decree is not binding and does not require the Canadian government to take any action. However, McPherson said recognizing Russiaʼs actions as genocide was a way to push the government to take more decisive action against Russia, especially sanctions.
