OTTAWA, April 11. /TASS/. The Canadian government intends to send troops to Ukraine in the coming months, CTV television channel reported on Friday. According to a government source, the military will not be engaged in military operations.
According to the TV channel website, CTV's Mercedes Stephenson reported the news Friday on Power Play. "While the government is still working out the details, sources tell CTV News a training mission is one of the options on the table. Canada will likely work closely with American allies who are already in the region," Stephenson said.
Stephenson said senior Conservatives have been hinting at the possibility of an expanded mission for weeks, and the move will emphasise "Canada's strong anti-Putin stance and help shore up the Ukrainian government."
According to CTV, the ruling Conservative Party may put this question to the national parliament debate soon. The dispatch of the Canadian troops to Ukraine will be explained as support for "Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.".
