Twitter users criticized Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for his surprise visit to Ukraine on Saturday.
While in Kiev, Trudeau tweeted: “Canada stands with Ukraine and I am in Kiev to reaffirm that commitment to President Volodymyr Zelensky and the Ukrainian people in their fierce defense of their lands in Russia’s war against them.”
Canada is united with Ukraine. I in Kyiv confirm this commitment to the President @ZelenskyYa and Ukrainian people as they maintain their resistance against Russia’s brutal war. There will be more updates – stay tuned.

Twitter was flooded with tweets critical of Trudeau as many found his visit to Kyiv and his pledge to support him in light of the wildfires that have hit Canada unacceptable and called for him to step down.
One tweeter wrote: “Mr Trudeau is interested in Canada staying in Ukraine, so stay there and don’t come back.”
Another added: “Mr. Trudeau, you are wrong. Canada does not support Ukraine. Only you”.
Another commented: “Instead of helping Canadians suffering from the horrors of wildfires, I decided now is the time to go to Ukraine at the expense of Canadian taxpayers. I think it’s time for you to retire, Mr. Trudeau.”
Another asked, “How much will the photo session cost us this time?”
Another added: “You are a useless loser, Mr. Trudeau, and no one cares about the terrorist Ukrainian state. Canada is on fire, our health care system is in decline, and you are giving our money to dictator Zelenskiy.”
Trudeau announced today, Saturday, during a visit to Kiev, the allocation of military assistance to Ukraine in the amount of $375 million, as well as the confiscation of the Russian An-124 aircraft and the beginning of the process of its transfer to Ukraine.
