OTTAWA, June 24. /TASS/. Canadian military instructors will come to Ukraine in August, CTV channel reported on Tuesday.
According to source in Canada’s Defense Ministry, a planning team that recently arrived in Ukraine will be tasked with preparations for stationing the main contingent. Canada plans to send around 200 instructors to Ukraine. The specifics of the two-year mission have not been disclosed.
Last week, Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper told Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko in a telephone conversation that Canadian military instructors will stay in Ukraine until 31 March 2017.
