MOSCOW, December 13./TASS/. The first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee Franz Klintsevich does not exclude that the supply of lethal weapons from Canada to Ukraine can change the balance of forces in the Donbass. An opinion was expressed by Senator 13 Dec journalists.
“Officially endorsing the supply of lethal weapons to Kiev, the government of Canada, in my opinion, does not understand what it’s pulling my country. I do not exclude that the supply is able in some measure to change the correlation of forces opposing each other in the Donbass (actually they started), but it’s still different. It creates a very dangerous precedent. In fact, Canada is becoming a party to domestic conflict, with all the ensuing consequences,” – said Klintsevich.
According to him, is, among other things, means that Canada assumes responsibility for the actions of the Ukrainian security forces, trained canadian instructors and equipped with the canadian weapon.
“If you call a spade a spade, Canada directly opposed the Minsk agreements” – quoted Klintsevich his press service.
