Alberta won't attend World Petroleum Congress in Russia over Ukraine crisis

EDMONTON - The Alberta government is pulling out of next month's World Petroleum Congress in Moscow to protest Russia's actions in Ukraine.

Premier Dave Hancock says it's important to show Alberta stands with the federal government in condemning Russia's annexation of sovereign Ukraine territory.

Hancock says the province won't dictate to private companies that had planned to go to the congress from June 15 to 19.

He says businesses can make their own decisions.

Intergovernmental Relations Minister Cal Dallas estimates the change in plans will cost the government about $100,000.

Alberta was to have a booth in the Canadian Pavilion and to help provincial oil and gas companies meet Russian officials and business leaders.
