Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau and Volodymyr Zelensky stood to applaud a man who fought for the Nazi SS during the Second World War after an address in parliament, footage shows. Anthony Rota, Speaker of Canada’s House of Commons, hailed 98-year-old Yaroslav Hunka as “a Ukrainian Canadian war veteran” who “fought for Ukrainian independence against the Russians”.

His tribute promoted a standing ovation from lawmakers in the chamber. Rota later apologised when it emerged that Hunka served in a division of the Nazi SS during the war. The speaker’s address had come after Mr Zelensky made a speech of his own in the Canadian parliament.
