Canada to increase navy coaching mission in Ukraine: supply

Canada to increase navy coaching mission in Ukraine: supply”

Both had been slated to wrap up at the end of March, but security concerns persist.

Canada will announce as expected on Monday that it is extending a 200-strong military training mission in Ukraine, a source directly familiar with the matter said on Sunday.

"The people of Ukraine know they can count on Canada", Freeland said in a statement. The training provided by the Canadian Armed Forces directly helps Ukraine's defence and security forces to uphold domestic security and territorial integrity, contributing to regional and global stability, reads the statement.

On March 18, 2014, Putin signed a treaty with representatives from Crimea to make it part of Russian Federation, two days after a referendum that was not recognised by the worldwide community. The peninsula had previously been part of Ukraine. Since 2015, Canada has so far trained almost 11,000 Ukrainian soldiers.

Operation UNIFIER is the Canadian Armed Forces training mission in Ukraine through which Canada provides military training and capacity-building assistance for Ukrainian military forces.

Canada has extended the Operation UNIFIER to train Ukrainian service members until the end of March 2022. They held a referendum on March 16, 2014, in which 96.7% of Crimeans and 95.6% of Sevastopol voters chose to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation.

In late 2016 Canadian officials said the trainers - who at that point were operating with Kurdish forces in northern Iraq - had clashed several dozen times with Islamic State militants over the course of a month.
