Meeting with Kenney, visit to consulate as former president of Ukraine visits Edmonton - 2019-11-25
A former president of Ukraine came to Edmonton Monday, fulfilling a long-standing invitation from the Ukrainian Canadian Congress to visit the Ukrainian Consulate General office, which opened in 2018.
Petro Poroshenko was Ukraine's fifth president between 2014 and 2019. While speaking with reporters at the Alberta legislature on Monday, he said his main message is that unity for Ukraine is an international issue.
"This is the global cause," Poroshenko said when asked about the current political situation in Ukraine.
