Canada Sends Soldiers to East Europe

Canada on Monday sent some 125 Canadian army soldiers to Eastern and Central Europe to support NATO reassurance measures, a statement on Canadian government’s website said.
Over the last few months, NATO has boosted its military presence in Eastern Europe in connection with the crisis in eastern Ukraine. The alliance said the move was necessary to ensure its members’ security, Sputnik reported.
“The 3 RCR contingent is a part of 2 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group (2 CMBG), based in Garrison Petawawa, Ontario. Operation Reassurance refers to the military activities undertaken by the Canadian Armed Forces to support NATO reassurance measures through the provision of military capabilities for training, exercises, demonstrations and assigned NATO tasks,” the statement reads.
The statement did not specify, to which countries the soldiers will be sent to.
Moscow has repeatedly expressed its concern about increased NATO military presence close to Russian borders.
