  • Ruslan Strilets discusses Canada and Ukraine’s climate initiatives at COP28 and development of nature reserve fund

    Minister of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources of Ukraine Ruslan Strilets met with the newly appointed Ambassador of Canada to Ukraine Natalka Cmoc to discuss Canada and Ukraine’s climate initiatives at COP28 and the development of the nature reserve fund. The Ambassador has strong ties with the Ukrainian community in Canada and is ready to contribute to deepening Canada-Ukraine relations in all areas.

    “A year ago, on the sidelines of COP15 in Montreal, we launched environmental cooperation with my Canadian counterpart Steven Guilbeault by signing a memorandum. Today we are working on its continuation,” said Ruslan Strilets.

    Since the first days of the full-scale invasion, Canada has provided Ukraine with full support – military, financial and advisory. The country was one of the first to join the group of partners working to hold russia accountable, including the creation of a special international tribunal for the crime of russian aggression against Ukraine.

    “It is important that Canada is ready to join the work to implement paragraph 8 of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s Peace Formula in terms of demining. We need to move from the development of plans to concrete actions,” said the Minister.
