“Putin has fundamentally miscalculated in a whole bunch of different ways.

STORYLINE:
Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, said, “Putin’s behavior only goes to show that his invasion is failing.”

Briefing reporters today (21 Sep) at the United Nations in New York, where he is attending the 77th session of the General Assembly, Trudeau said that Canada condemns “Putin's irresponsible escalation of the war.”

He added, “His partial military mobilization, his nuclear threats, as well as Russian-rushed referendums to try to annex parts of Ukraine are unacceptable.”

Trudeau noted, “We are facing an unprecedented situation where one of the founding members of the United Nations member of the permanent Security Council is violating the most basic tenets of what the UN stands for.”

Responding to questions from reporters, the Canadian prime minister said, “Putin has fundamentally miscalculated in a whole bunch of different ways. He massively underestimated, first and foremost, the strength, the resilience, the courage of Ukrainians when it comes to defending their homeland, defending their rights to choose their own future.”

He added that Putin also “massively miscalculated when he thought democracies around the world would not stand up to defend the very core principles that underlie our democracies.”

Answering another journalist, Trudeau said that Canada would continue to send the kind of equipment Ukraine ask for.

“Right now,” he said, “as they're pushing into formerly Russian-held territory - that is still part of Ukraine's territory - they're asking us for more ammunition, and that is what we are focused on sending” so that Ukrainians can “try to match the extraordinary expenditures and munitions that Russia is sending on them every day.”

Regarding Haiti, the Prime Minister of Canada said it is increasingly clear that “Haitians themselves need to be at the center of building stability and a long-term future for Haiti.”

He concluded by saying that after “many years and even decades of the international community, trying to fix Haiti for Haitians, we need to make sure that Haiti itself is driving the lasting change that we need to see in that once beautiful country that will be beautiful again.”
