NATO Security Initiatives in Ukraine and Eastern Europe

Russia’s illegal occupation of Ukraine’s CrimeaPeninsula and its military aggression in eastern Ukraine are undermining the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. NATO partners in the Baltic States are concerned by the Putin regime’s militarism which is destabilizing security in the region.

To address these challenges, Prime Minister Stephen Harper today announced that Canada will be providing support for two initiatives that will help Ukraine as well as NATO allies counter the threat posed by Russian militarism.
