Toronto: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized on Wednesday for honoring a man who fought on behalf of the Nazis during Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s address to parliament last week. Trudeau said the speaker of the House of Commons, the lower house of Commons, “bears sole responsibility” for inviting the man and honoring him in Parliament.
Trudeau also said that it happened by mistake but it caused embarrassment to Parliament and Canada. The Speaker of the House of Commons resigned from the post on Tuesday. Before entering the House of Commons, Trudeau said, “All those present in the House on Friday deeply regret that they saw that person standing. “This is an insult to the millions of people who died in the Holocaust and is extremely sad and painful for the Jewish people,” Trudeau said. Apologized once again in Parliament for this.
Canadian MPs gave Zelensky a standing ovation after Speaker Anthony Rota turned his attention to 98-year-old Yaroslav Hunka shortly after Zelensky addressed the House of Commons on Friday. Rota hailed Hunka as a war hero who fought for the 1st Ukrainian Division.
