The Influence of the Ukraine Crisis on Current Russian-Canadian Relations

Student: Marina Kalinina

Supervisor: Maxim Bratersky

Faculty: Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs

Educational Programme: International Relations (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2016

This paper presents the evolution of Russian – Canadian relations from the establishment of the Soviet Union to the present times and the influence of the Ukrainian diaspora on this process. Current Russian – Canadian relations are examined within the framework of the Ukrainian crisis as a major factor at play. The analysis also shows that Canadian policy towards Russia with regard to the issues of the Ukrainian crisis is not just following the policies pursued by the states - members of NATO, as it is widely accepted, but it is much more sensitive because of the influence of internal factors such as the lobby of the Ukrainian diaspora in Canada. Key words: Russian – Canadian relations, the Ukrainian diaspora, the Ukrainian crisis.
