Newsline: Canada’s U.N. ambassador denounces attack on ‘global order’

Canada’s man at the United Nations, Bob Rae, is a diplomat who is calling it like he sees it these days. “We know [the Russians] are lying because their lips are moving,” Rae recently told a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation interviewer. The aggression that’s been carried out by Putin’s government is a breach of every aspect of international law, every aspect of the international order, he said. What Russia is doing is not just an attack on Ukraine, it’s an attack on the global order, it can’t be allowed to stand, Rae said.
