Joint letter to Minister Freeland

The Ukrainian Canadian Congress was pleased to co-sign a letter to Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Honourable Chrystia Freeland in response to reports that various parliamentarians are encouraging the Government of Canada to add the “Magnitsky Law” to the agenda of the upcoming G7 summit in Quebec, to encourage our allies who have not already done so to adopt similar legislation.

While Britain and the United States have similar laws, France, Germany, Italy and Japan have no such legal measures to hold foreign nationals accountable. Legislation like the Magnitsky Law sends an extremely powerful message to repressive, totalitarian regimes around the world that they cannot violate human rights with
impunity.
