Government Action towards Ukraine Pose Danger to Canadians

Government Action towards Ukraine Pose Danger to Canadians

The Canadian Voice of Women for Peace (VOW) are convinced that the actions and stated policies of the Canadian government towards Ukraine pose a danger to Canadians and the world. By supporting the present Ukrainian regime with non-lethal military aid and training, while at the same time confronting Russia, a nuclear power, the Canadian government endangers us all. Both the US and Russia have the nuclear capability to obliterate all life from earth. Canada, rather than contributing to a war that may bring nuclear powers into conflict, should, like Germany, France and Russia, seek a non-violent, negotiated resolution for Ukraine.

Since the overthrow of the president of Ukraine in February, 2014, and the return of Crimea to the Russian Federation, Canada has strongly supported the new Ukrainian regime. With the US, Britain and other NATO members, Canada has accused Vladimir Putin of aggression, sanctioned Russia and participated in NATO activities intended to intimidate. Canada has sent and continues to send non-lethal military equipment and trainers to Ukraine. Between August and November, 2014, 55 million of military aid was sent. An additional 11 million was sent in November, 2014, the month Prime Minister Steven Harper at a G20 Meeting told President Vladimir Putin of Russia to “get out of Ukraine”. A shipment of similar military aid is planned for coming months.

People in all parts of Ukraine are suffering from the ongoing conflict. At least 5,000, possibly as many as 50,000, women, children and men have already died by violence, and many more thousands have fled to neighbouring countries. Yet Canada, rather than supporting attempts at peace, particularly the second Minsk ceasefire agreement brokered by Germany and France, continues to send military aid and demonize Russia.

For the sake of the people of Ukraine, and for all of us under threat of nuclear annihilation, we demand that the Canadian Government move back from the brink of nuclear war and seek a negotiated peace in Ukraine. ​
