Canada’s House of Commons voted to recognize Russia’s actions in Ukraine as genocide, Reuters reported on April 28.

The Canadian parliament resolution states that there is sufficient evidence that systemic Russian war crimes, mass killings, and crimes against humanity, were perpetrated by Russian troops against Ukrainians on the orders of Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian parliament.

Canada’s House of Commons said that Russian war crimes include “mass atrocities, systematic instances of willful killing of Ukrainian civilians, the desecration of corpses, forcible transfer of Ukrainian children, torture, physical harm, mental harm, and rape.”
