Canada funding Ukrainian armed opposition

21 February 2014 — Voltaire Network

The Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs has made an “exceptional contribution” to a Ukrainian NGO to pay for a previously ordered field hospital and medical equipment.

Foreigh Minister John Baird said the medical relief will ensure that treatment is provided to “the courageous activists injured while speaking out peacefully in support of democracy.”

The transaction took place 17 February 2014, the day before the assault on Maidan Square by the armed opposition.
