OTTAWA, September 9. /ITAR-TASS/. Canada is ready to impose new sanctions against Russia, if the agreement on ceasefire in eastern Ukraine will be violated. Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs John Baird has stated this after talks with EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton on Monday.

“Obviously we want to see a political solution to the crisis in Ukraine. We remain deeply skeptical of the Russian Federation's willingness to have a major de-escalation in this crisis,” Baird said.

“Let's give a political solution a chance. Obviously if more provocation and more negative aspects emerge, we would advocate strongly for additional measures (against Russia),” he stressed.

A joint statement of Baird and Ashton upon the results of the talks says: “In the face of unacceptable provocations in Ukraine, we continue to stand united in support of free, independent and democratic nations.”
