On Thursday morning, Plante said Montreal condemns the Russian attack on Ukraine, which she says is in violation of the United Nations Charter. “The City of Montreal stands in solidarity with the Ukrainian people, with whom we share a historical and deep relationship,” she said. “My heart goes out to the innocent victims.”
On Thursday morning, Russia officially began its military invasion of Ukraine, now under martial law, as tanks and missiles rolled into the capital.
Ukrainian police say over 200 Russian attacks have been carried out in the country since Thursday morning alone.
