In a statement, the Central Executive Committee of the Communist Party of Canada condemns the decision of the Trudeau government to expel four Russian diplomats, calling it "part of a dangerous New Cold War".
The CPC has sharply condemned the Trudeau government’s decision to expel four Russian diplomats from Canada, in lock step with the Conservative government of Theresa May in UK, who demanded ‘solidarity’ actions from European and NATO countries, including the US, declaring she had led “the largest collective expulsion of Russian intelligence officers in history”.
In fact, the expulsions exceed any equivalent action taken since the height of the Cold War. Nearly 150 Russian diplomats have been expelled from 24 countries, including 60 from the US.
