War in Ukraine | No Canadian soldiers sent to Ukraine, government decides

(Ottawa) Canada has no intention of sending combat troops to Ukraine, the Trudeau government has ruled, the day after a shock statement from French President Emmanuel Macron.

The office of the Minister of National Defense, Bill Blair, was unequivocal on Tuesday.

“We will continue to provide the military assistance that Ukraine needs, but as a member of NATO, Canada does not intend to deploy combat troops in Ukraine,” assured his attaché. press, Diana Ebadi, in an email.

Minister Blair participated on Monday in the conference in support of Ukraine which was organized by French President Emmanuel Macron at the Élysée.

It was on this occasion that the head of state made remarks which caused a shock wave in the capitals of Ukraine’s allied countries, and which caused the Kremlin to react.

While recognizing that there was “no consensus today to send ground troops in an official, assumed and endorsed manner”, Emmanuel Macron then argued that nothing was excluded.
