Every day it becomes clearer that about any peaceful resolution of the conflict in the Donbass Ukrainian authorities do not think, and all plans relate solely to use force to solve problems.
Kiev is like manna from heaven waiting for Washington to give him a lethal weapon. But, despite numerous promises, the White house is still not in a hurry to please click Poroshenko.
Although, it seems, meanwhile, has found another benefactor in Canada. According to the Canada Gazette, the official publication of the canadian government, “the list of countries that allow the sale of lethal weapons, changing in connection with the addition in alphabetical order of Ukraine”. It is noted that changes to the list take effect from the date of its registration on December 13.
According to military expert Alexei Leonova, Ottawa made this decision without the influence of Washington: “Donald trump is not particularly eager to sign the resolution on the supply of lethal weapons, but in a roundabout way this is happening. No good it is not”.
Of course, this caused the expected reaction of Kiev: the Ukrainian President expressed gratitude to Canada and the United States for the decisions that opened the way for arms supplies to Ukraine.
“I’m thankful to Washington and Ottawa for a powerful and timely signal of support”, – wrote Poroshenko on his page in Facebook. According to him, now opened the way to strengthening the military power of Ukraine.
Spoke on this occasion and the Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin, praising Canada “for a friendly and solidarity towards Ukraine”.
Clearly disapprove of such behavior of the canadian authorities, first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Frants Klintsevich as saying that the decision of Canada “creates a very dangerous precedent”, because now the country becomes a party to the Ukrainian domestic conflict “with all the ensuing consequences.”
In addition, thus Canada “takes responsibility for the actions of the Ukrainian security forces, trained canadian instructors and equipped with the canadian weapon.”
And most importantly, I’m sure the Russian Senator decided to supply weapons to Ukraine, Canada directly opposed the Minsk agreements. That is, have contributed to the cause of the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine.
