More on #CAN (Allegedly?) sending Ammo to #UKR

with one comment

Re:  Canada sending ammo to UKR, as reported by Russian state media, it must be true if the RUS Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson said it (link in Russian – Google Translate version below) …

… On the decision of Canada to extend its military instructor mission in Ukraine

With serious concern, they took Canada’s decision to extend for a period of two years its military mission in Ukraine. Within its framework, Canadian instructors are engaged in the so-called Ukrainian polygons. “Training” Ukrainian soldiers for subsequent shipment to the Donbass.

We consider such decisions and actions of the Government of Canada to be extremely dangerous. They interfere with the political settlement of the ongoing confrontation caused by the Kiev authorities. Moreover, according to the information available to us, the instructors are not limited to instructors – the Canadians began to supply ammunition for the Ukrainian armed forces, which will undoubtedly fall into the conflict zone.

Instead of exerting pressure on Kiev to compel it to fully fulfill its obligations under the Minsk agreements, Ottawa frankly favors the supporters of a forceful solution of the situation in the Donbass, and also condones the continuation of the bloodshed. In Canada, we must understand that the consequences of such policies and actions will be on their conscience …

 … and it was reported in Russian state media

… 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,” the Russian diplomat pointed out. “Canadians should realize that the consequences of such steps will be on their conscience.”

 … not to mention repeated in separatist UKR media

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 …

The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces has denied reports that Canada is providing ammunition to Ukraine.

“It’s not true. This statement is nothing but a cynical lie,” Bohdan Sennyk, the head of the Ukrainian General Staff press service, told reporters on Friday.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova earlier said Canada had started supplying ammunition to the Ukrainian authorities.
