Russia-Ukraine conflict: Trudeau speaks after Putin launches “military operation” in Ukraine | LIVE

1 min read

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to deliver remarks and hold a media availability Thursday in response to the ongoing “military operation” by Russia taking place in Ukraine.

Russian President Vladimir Putin defied international pressure and launched a wide-ranging attack on Ukraine Thursday, telling the West not to intervene in what appeared to be the beginning of a new conflict in Europe.

Putin said in an early morning televised speech the “special military operation,” which he said would occur in eastern Ukraine, was in response to Ukrainian threats while insisting Russia doesn’t have a goal to occupy the country.

As of mid-morning Thursday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy says Russian forces are attempting to take the Chernobyl nuclear plant. The Russian military also says it has destroyed 74 Ukrainian facilities, including 11 air bases.

Putin has faced widespread condemnation for the action, with Biden denouncing the “unprovoked and unjustified” attack and saying the world will “hold Russia accountable.” The White House said Biden spoke with Zelenskyy shortly after Russia’s attacks began, promising “severe sanctions” and international support.
