Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has ended a whirlwind visit to war-torn Ukraine. During his visit, he attacked Russian President Vladimir Putin. Describing the Russian leader as weak, he said that he is using the police and the army to suppress the opposition.

At the end of the visit, Trudeau told reporters in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, that Putin was responsible for the death of opposition leader Alexei Navalny. He died suddenly in the Arctic Penal Colony. He was serving a 19-year sentence there.

Navalny, 47, was considered Putin’s greatest political enemy. However, the Kremlin has denied Putin’s involvement in Navalny’s death.

Trudeau joined other world leaders in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, to sign a security agreement with the country. Among them is a military spending pledge of $3.2 billion by the end of the year.

The visit is part of a global campaign to show international solidarity with Ukraine in the face of the bloody conflict. Experts see no end to this conflict.

Trudeau arrived at Hostal Airport with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, Italian Premier Giorgia Meloni and Belgian Prime Minister Alexandre de Crewe. He said Putin was confident of easily taking control of strategic targets like this airport. But he was wrong. That is why we are standing here today.

This is Trudeau’s third visit to Ukraine since the war began. Russian President Vladimir Putin launched an invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022. Hours later his paratroopers stormed the airport.

Trudeau said Putin cannot win. Ukraine looks to win, just like it did here two years ago.
