Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is set to visit Canada later this week, where he will deliver an address to the country’s parliament, according to sources. While this visit has not been officially announced, preparations are already underway in Ottawa.
Zelenskyy’s visit to Canada comes after his meeting with U.S. President Joe Biden in Washington, D.C. and his address at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City. This will be his first visit to Canada since the invasion of Ukraine by Russian President Vladimir Putin in February 2022.
The Ukrainian president is expected to arrive on Thursday and deliver his speech to parliament on Friday morning. This visit coincides with the first week back for parliamentarians in Ottawa. After his address, Zelenskyy will travel to Toronto and depart later that day, spending approximately 24 hours in the country.
It is worth noting that Zelenskyy previously delivered a virtual address to the Canadian Parliament in March 2022, where he passionately appealed for urgent assistance from Canadian officials. This upcoming visit could provide an opportunity for further discussions and collaboration between Ukraine and Canada on the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.
As this is a developing news story, more information is expected to be available in the coming days. Stay tuned for updates on President Zelenskyy’s visit to Canada and his address to the Canadian Parliament.
