Canada should provide Ukraine with lethal weapons - parliament

Canada should provide Ukraine with lethal weapons to increase the capabilities of the Ukrainian army to counter the Russian aggression.

This is stated in a report prepared by the Canadian Parliament's Standing Committee on National Defense entitled "Canada's Support to Ukraine in Crisis and Armed Conflict," which was made available to Ukrinform.

"We recommend the Government of Canada to provide lethal weapons to Ukraine to protect its sovereignty from the Russian aggression," the document reads.

For this, Ukraine has to prove that it is "actively working to eradicate corruption at all levels of government."

The members of the Committee also offer to include Ukraine into the so-called Automatic Firearms Country Control List that identifies the countries which the Canadian domestic producers supply with weapons. Now it includes 39 countries, including Botswana, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Colombia, but there is no Ukraine.
