Canada training Ukrainian troops, delivers ammunition used in Donbass – Moscow
Canada has begun to supply the Ukrainian military with ammunition that is sure to be delivered to the conflict zone, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova states.
By extending its military mission in Ukraine, Canada encourages the Ukrainian supporters using military force to resolve the Donbass conflict, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday.
“Ottawa has chosen to openly encourage those in Kiev who support the use of military force to resolve the Donbass conflict, instead of exerting pressure on Ukraine to make it fulfill its obligations under the Minsk agreements,” Zakharova said.
She add that Moscow was concerned over Canada’s decision to extend its military mission. “Canadian instructors have been training Ukrainian military servicemen scheduled to be deployed to Donbass,” noted the Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman.
“We believe that this decision and the Canadian government’s activities in general to be very dangerous. They hamper the political process aimed to settle the conflict which is still raging because of Kiev’s stance. Moreover, according to the information that we have, Canada has begun to supply the Ukrainian military with ammunition that is sure to be delivered to the conflict zone,” pointed out the Russian diplomat.
“Canadians should realize that the consequences of such steps will be on their conscience,” summed up Maria Zakharova.
