Last visit pastry in Ottawa was really unpleasant, as in the case on their own intervened Moscow, “seduced” and suddenly have canadian friends of the Maidan. Of course, from the point of view of Ukrainian patriots.
The Minister of foreign Affairs of Canada Chrystia Freeland supported any peacekeeping intervention in the conflict in the South-East of the country and spoke about the negotiations on this subject, held recently in Ottawa with the participation of Justin Trudeau, Angela Merkel and Petro Poroshenko. The foreign Minister met with the Prime Minister and US special envoy Kurt Volker.
Judging by Freeland, Poroshenko had to be seriously upset by the results of their visit, because no one supported his draft resolution on sending peacekeepers to the Donbass. Canadian friend pastry chef for a couple with a German friend convinced him of the urgent need to address the issue, according to the already presented in the UN resolution. There is no point to waste time with their adjustments and refinements. The current document perfectly satisfies all participants of process of peaceful settlement.
Thus, Poroshenko made clear that any of his choices he will not have to submit to the will of the elders. Probably the first time in the history of independent Ukraine, Canada almost openly took the side of Russia, tacitly endorsing its resolution in the UN.
The same is told Freeland to her guest Groisman, perhaps even in softer tones, justifying its role as a diplomat. For Ukraine, Canada’s position should look like the real betrayal. While Europe gently shrugs off Ukrainian peacekeeping program, loss of Canada as a staunch ally, may become for Ukraine a fatal blow, in “Donbass”.
Canadians, naturally, tried to sweeten the pot and smoothed the sharp corners, saying that Ottawa supports any option for peacekeepers, if only it brought the expected results. In this case, and the Prime Minister and the foreign Minister urged the guests to embrace the available resolution. No wonder Walker was present at both meetings. Most likely, he was forced to change the rhetoric of the inveterate defenders of the Maidan. And the Americans, in turn, persuaded Surkov, a very intricate way affecting the present is already the most Pro-Ukrainian Canada.
