Please see the statements below from Wab Kinew, Leader of the Official Opposition, and Mark Wasyliw, MLA for Fort Garry and member of the Manitoba-Ukrainian community.
"Manitobans today are deeply troubled by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The Manitoba NDP stands with the people of Ukraine, and the Ukrainian community in Manitoba and Canada, and we condemn Russia’s violent imperialism. We will continue to work with the Manitoba Ukrainian community to identify ways to help those who are in danger."
- Wab Kinew
"The Ukrainian community in Manitoba is heartbroken today to see their friends, relatives and homeland under siege. Governments at every level must do everything they can to pursue peace and protect the Ukrainian people from Russia's violent and imperialist invasion. Ukrainian sovereignty and independence must be protected."
- Mark Wasyliw
