Russia’s ambassador to Canada says arms supplies to Ukraine will exacerbate internal conflict

Russian Ambassador to Ottawa Oleg Stepanov, on the air of the Canadian television channel CTV News, expressed concern that the supply of weapons to Ukraine from Canada would contribute to the aggravation of the internal conflict in the country.

“Our position is that sending any weapons to countries like Ukraine that are in a state of civil war is not conducive to any peace initiatives. This only ignites the conflict and stimulates the “hot heads” in Kiev, who have the illusion that they can launch a military operation and take the eastern parts of Ukraine by force,” TASS quoted Stepanov as saying.

Earlier it was reported that a small contingent of Canadian special forces was sent to Ukraine.

The Russian Embassy in the United States called on the United States authorities to abandon plans to supply weapons to Ukraine.
