Russia Seeks International Arrest Warrant For Former Ukraine PM, Reported to Now Hold Canadian Citizenship - by David Climenhaga
"No one in Canada's mainstream media appears to have followed up on the original reports Yatsenyuk and his family were given Canadian citizenship, although perhaps they should be now if the situation is going to involve Canada in an extradition battle with Russia."

Given Canada's clear bias in favour of the installed Nazi oligarchy in Kiev, one assumes CF participation in any 'peacekeeping' operation would necessarily be a non-starter.
Canada and Ukraine Are Discussing Joint Arms Manufacturing As Canada Lifts Sales Restrictions
Yes, more arms for Nazi Ukraine. Good job Canada!
"“Now when it comes to weapons systems and lethality, it can’t be looked at in that manner. We have to look at it in terms of any type of system that you provide, you have to look at what type of capacity is needed to be able to use it as well. So, we’re looking at a much more thorough plan of helping the Ukrainian armed forces to be able to modernize with their command and control structure, their sustainment system as well. So, our discussion is not just strictly about a shopping list of systems. It’s about building the capacity.”
Canada Follows Trump-Led US With New Sanctions Against Russia In Own 'Magnitsky Act' - by Roger Annis

More Drumbeat For Western Military Intervention Into Ukraine Under The Guise of 'Peacekeeping' - By Roger Annis
"Front-page article in Canadian daily voices call for 'peacekeeping' military intervention into eastern Ukraine, ignores UN Security Council's resolution backing 2015 'Minsk-2' ceasefire and political agreement. The latest instalment of media obfuscation of Minsk-2 is to make it 'disappear'. A front-page article in Canada's Globe and Mail on November 9 performs such an act. The 13-part text of the Minsk-2 agreement can be read here..."
On Target: Canada Drawn Into The Puzzling Politics of Ukraine - by Scott Taylor
"...While Freeland purports to support the people of Ukraine, it must be noted that Poroshenko presently has just a two-per-cent approval rating; allowing for a margin of error, this equals to zero. Then there is Saakashvili, who is presenting himself as his adopted country's anti-corruption saviour, while unable to return to his own country where he is himself wanted for corruption. And somehow this is all Russian President Putin's fault?"
Kiev Hails US and Canada For Greenlighting Lethal Arms Supplies That Could Kill Ukraine Peace Process
"By including Ukraine on the list of countries approved for lethal weapons sales, Canada has become a side in a bloody civil war, undermining a shaky peace process, a senior Russian senator said, as Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko applauded the move. 'As it was agreed, the United States authorized sending assistance for our country and Canada included Ukraine into the Automatic Firearms Country Control List. The door to enhanced defense assistance for Ukraine has been opened.'
This makes Canada a party to the conflict, says Frank Klintsevich. 'A very dangerous precedent has been created. Effectively Canada has become a party to the internal Ukrainian conflict with all ensuing consequences. And this, above all, means that it assumes responsibility for the actions of the Ukrainian forces trained by Canadian instructors and equipped with Canadian weapons..."
Canadian Arms Makers Get OK To Sell To Ukraine
"The Liberal cabinet has given the green light for Canadian defence contractors to sell weapons to Ukraine in a watershed decision which a senior official of that country hopes will influence the Trump administration to follow suit. The decision was made on Nov 23, according to a cabinet order posted online. It was released publicly on Wednesday, as the House of Commons prepared to rise for Christmas break. The move puts Canada out ahead of the United States which has been considering its own weapons sales.
In a statement, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said the decision reflects closer ties between Canada and Ukraine. Both Project Ploughshares and Amnesty International Canada opposed the plan..."

Canada Takes Initiative Among NATO Countries in Deciding To Provide Heavy Weapons To Ukraine
"The decision by Washington's junior partner in Ottawa is a blow to human rights organizations and others in the US and internationally who argue that increasing the arms flow to the regime in Kiev will only escalate Ukraine's violence against the people's republics of Donetsk and Lugansk in eastern Ukraine. Minsk-2 was endorsed by the UN Security Council on Feb. 17, 2015: That shows the regard which NATO members such as the US and Canada attach to that world body..."
Canada will also now likely be able to source US weapons, such as Javelin anti-tank weapons on Ukraine's behalf.
On Target: Exports of Arms To Ukraine 'Scary' - by Scott Taylor
"...Not that long ago we prided ourselves as being the world's peacekeepers, and now we are actually in violation of the internationally brokered Minsk II treaty which prohibits the military escalation in the frozen Ukraine conflict. Freeland is rushing in where even Donald Trump fears to tread. That is scary."
