Ninety-seven Ukrainian children have died since the start of the Russian invasion, President Volodymyr Zelensky said Tuesday in a speech to the Canadian parliament, once again imploring the allies to “extend” their support for kyiv.

In the video address, the Ukrainian leader accused the Russian army of “destroying everything: memorial complexes, schools, hospitals, housing complexes”.

“They have already killed 97 Ukrainian children,” Zelensky said.

“We are not asking for much. We are asking for justice, real support, which will help us to triumph, to (defend ourselves), to save lives,” he said, to a standing ovation from the crowd. legislators.

Earlier, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced sanctions against 15 other Russian officials, including “government and military elites complicit in this illegal war.”

The move brings to nearly 500 the number of Belarusian, Russian and Ukrainian individuals and entities sanctioned by Ottawa since the war began last month.

“Vladimir Putin’s blatant disregard for human life is unacceptable,” the Canadian leader said, while praising Zelensky as an inspiration.

“Democracies around the world are lucky to have you as their champion,” he said, promising that Ukraine “can count on our unwavering and unwavering support.”

Zelensky thanked Canada for the sanctions as well as military equipment and humanitarian aid.

“Please step up your efforts to bring peace to our peaceful country,” he said.
