Canada temporarily relocates its military instructors from Ukraine

Against the background of possible Russian aggression, Canada has decided to temporarily relocate its military instructors from Ukraine.

“As a result of the complex operational environment linked to Russia’s unwarranted aggression against Ukraine, the Canadian Armed Forces is in the process of temporarily relocating components of Joint Task Force – Ukraine (JTF-U) to elsewhere in Europe,” reads the statement made by the Ministry of National Defense of Canada.

As noted, the temporary repositioning of JTF-U personnel “does not signal the end of the mission, but rather allows us to refocus our efforts while ensuring the safety and security of CAF members.”

“Force protection is the top priority for our training mission, of which operational security is a key component. Thus, while we can confirm we have relocated some of our forces outside of Ukraine, we will not discuss numbers, locations, or future intentions,” the Ministry added.

It is underscored that the Canadian Armed Forces remains committed to the people of Ukraine and its mission to increase the capacity and capability of the Security Forces of Ukraine.

Earlier, the United States and Great Britain announced the recall of their military instructors from Ukraine.
