How did Canada celebrate Russia Day?

A holiday at the embassy, the fate of Russian assets and perfume with the scent of Ukraine.

National holiday

The Russian Embassy celebrated Russia Day on Friday. Yasemin Heinbecker, deputy head of the Department of Protocol of International Relations, attended the event.

Previously, Ottawa City Hall had refused to raise the Russian flag and illuminate its own building in red, white, and blue. It is hard to say whether Ottawa has violated its own rules: diplomatic relations have not been severed, so the flag should have been raised. City Hall cites a clause in its own protocol that it has the right not to display "the flag of a group or organization whose actions or philosophy are contrary to Ottawa city policy or charter, support hatred, violence or racism, are politically or religiously motivated, or represent other personal beliefs."

The presence of a protocol official at the official Russia Day celebration was also necessary to maintain diplomatic relations. When the Globe and Mail news outlet wrote about it, foreign ministry officials initially responded that way, but abruptly changed their minds two days later. The ministry officially apologized and promised it would not happen again. Russian diplomats will not be invited to Canada Day.

Russian Ambassador to Canada Oleg Stepanov thanked Heinbecker for his participation in the event. It is known that there were diplomats from other countries at the celebration.

Russian assets in Canada

The budget implementation bill passed its final reading in the House of Commons on June 9. When the bill passes the Senate, Canada will be able to seize and use Russian assets subject to sanctions.
