Elizabeth May Question on Ukraine

On Wednesday, March 25th, 2015 in Uncategorized

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Prime Minister. It relates to Canada’s support for Ukraine.

We all join the Prime Minister in condemning Putin’s aggression, but the extent of Canada’s involvement with Ukraine does not appear on the DFATD website. We learned through the media of RADARSAT-2 data being provided to Ukraine, initially over the objections of the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Department of National Defence.

I hear that there may be memorandum of understanding between Canada and Ukraine. I would like the Prime Minister to confirm that and let the House know when it will be tabled with Parliament.

Rob Nicholson: Mr. Speaker, we have been very clear throughout this that Canada is standing with the people of Ukraine in the face of Vladimir Putin’s military aggression and we have made significant contributions directly to Ukraine. We have been part of the NATO assurance package.

Whether it takes five months or 50 years, we will stand with the people of Ukraine for their independence and their freedom.
