Canada should extend its UNIFIER military training mission to support Ukraine in confronting Russian aggression.

This was said in the statement by the Ukrainian Canadian Congress, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"The Armed Forces of Ukraine and members of other law enforcement agencies continue to protect their country from Russian aggression, so a significant Canadian military support would be important," the UCC reports.

As noted, the best way to ensure peace and stability in Ukraine and in the whole region is to develop defensive capacities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine by "well trained and equipped soldiers." "It is important that Canada continue training Ukrainian servicemen until 2020, maintaining at the current level or even increasing the number of Canadian soldiers involved," the Congress stressed.
