Occupants have no place here: Canada calls for Russia to be excluded from the IMF and G-20
Canada is in favor of excluding Russia from the International Monetary Fund and the G-20. Canada said that Russia poses a threat to the global economy.
This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister of Canada Chrystia Freeland. She said that at the meetings of the IMF and the World Bank, ministers and heads of central banks act as the so-called firefighters, whose job it is to protect the global economy.
Canada will continue to involve Russia in responsibility
At the same time, Russia, as the Canadian official stressed, is right now an arsonist. “Dust has no place at a meeting of firefighters,” said Chrystia Freeland.
She stressed that Russia should not attend IMF meetings. At the same time, Freeland admitted that Canada cannot influence Russia's membership in the IMF or the G20, but is ready to publicly blame the regime of Vladimir Putin for the decision to go to war with its neighbor.
Canada will continue to hold Russia accountable and we will continue to denounce its downright bad war crimes in Ukraine,” she added.
Freeland said there is one step that will eliminate major shocks to the global economy, help reduce food shortages and help with the high cost of energy in much of the world.
“And that step for Russia is to get out of Ukraine now” , – said the Deputy Prime Minister of Canada.
