According to the Huffington Post, the Minister has made the following statement during his speech for the Congress of Ukrainians in Canada.

"Yes, it is terrorism. And, Vladimir Putin behaves like a terrorist," – announced the Canadian politician.

Also, Chris Alexander has noted that "there is no such scenario that would bring peace to the whole world, but would exclude active international efforts to provide Ukraine with all necessary means to make withdraw Russian troops to its borders and preserve them."

Russian Embassy in Canada has posted a video of Chris Alexander's speech on its Twitter, calling the statement by the Minister as "five minutes of hate" and saying that it is "hardly the artwork of diplomacy."

The Canadian Minister reacted to the statement as follows: "Your invasion of Ukraine brought 14 months of death. How many more "Anschlusses" does Putin have planned?... You reap what you sow. Putin was wrong illegally to invade, claim another country's sovereign territory.

It is worth noting that Canada has been among the most active countries in the world condemning Putin's actions and providing Ukraine with non-lethal military equipment in order to help the country to protect its borders.
