CAF: No Ammo Donation to #UKR
Got a very quick response from DND’s Info-machine re: this story out of the Russian Foreign Ministry about Canada allegedly providing ammo to Ukrainian forces.
DND’s response by e-mail, short & sweet, in its entirety:
We received your request about references to Russia saying Canada is sending ammunition to Ukraine. Regarding allegations of a Canadian donation of ammunition to Ukraine, it is false. Here what the Ukrainian military had to say: https://www.kyivpost.com/ukraine-politics/ukrainian-military-denies-receiving-ammo-canada.html.
More information on what the Government of Canada is providing to Ukraine can be found here: https://www.canada.ca/en/department-national-defence/news/2017/03/canada_renews_itsmilitarycommitmenttoukraine.html.
Here’s another link to the UKR govt’s denial, given that the one DND shared is a subscriber-only link.
So begins Russia’s info-fight against Canada in Ukraine?
