Canada’s embassy used as pawn during Ukraine uprising, investigation finds

KYIV, Ukraine – It was one of those events that simply appeared and disappeared during the bloody, swift-moving events of Ukraine in the winter revolution of 2014.

Canada’s embassy in Kyiv was used as a haven for several days by anti-government protesters during the uprising that toppled the regime of former president Viktor Yanukovych.

    Lackeys of the “Trudeau opposition” busy sifting through old crap in pursuit of any comfort they can bring those cretins tasked with defeating the “Harper government”?

    The Canadian ambassador in Kiev said:

    “the safety and security for diplomats is a paramount concern, and Canada’s backing of democracy in Ukraine should surprise no one.

    “The public stance ministers and the prime minister took during the Maidan events; that Canada stood on the side of those who were protesting for freedom and democracy, and certainly we’ve never made any apologies for that,” the ambassador said”

    What is he talking about? The Ukraine WAS a democratic country with a democratically elected president before Obama partnered with Harper and other EU leaders to overthrow the elected President. To achieve their goal of regime change they partnered with anti-Semitic neo-Nazi’s. The resulting civil war has resulted in the deaths of thousands of white civilians (this probably delights Obama). Why did Canada get involved in this conflict? How do we benefit by destabilizing this region? This is like the stupid decision Harper made to provide air support to Al Qaeda in Libya so as to bring the downfall of Qaddafi. We know how that turned out!

      Agree on both counts. Interference in both of these cases was not justified and was not intended to promote freedom. These were old school cold war type proxy actions. I like Harper but there is no question that any sane person could have seen where Libya would end up. As for the Ukraine, I hear a lot of bluster about how bad the russian backed separatists are from the same people who backed the bogus arab spring ‘uprisings’.
