Kyiv, Ukraine mayor to speak to Toronto city councillors Thursday
Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko, alongside deputy mayor Mykola Povoroznyk, will speak to councillors in Ukrainian at 9:30 a.m. An English translation will be provided for councillors and members of the public listening.
The time of the speech may vary based on the two Ukrainian politicians’ availability, Toronto said.
The City of Toronto signed a friendship agreement with Kyiv when Ukraine declared independence in 1991, more than 30 years ago.
Toronto Mayor John Tory has been vocal in his support for Ukraine, speaking at rallies held in Nathan Phillips Square.
The speech will be livestreamed and can be watched here.
