The possibility of a space probe Radarsat-2 are of great interest to the intelligence of any country: it is able to supply the necessary data at any time of day and in any weather, even in overcast conditions.

in the past year, Ukraine has requested the canadian authorities to provide it with some data, obtained using Radarsat-2, and in February the head of the Ministry of defence of Canada Jason Kenney promised to do, informs magazine.

the head of the green party Elizabeth may filed a request to the Government: not worried about the canadian military this question? The government official declined to comment, but the parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister Paul Calandra explained that were held necessary meetings with the Ministry of defence and the Canadian space Agency.

"The decision to transfer the satellite photos Ukraine will not have a negative impact on the Ability of Canada to use the satellite for other purposes that include maintaining the defense of Canada," said Calandra.

anyway, before the state security Department was informed that the defence Ministry is experiencing " an acute shortage of payment access to Radarsat-2 data and the latest budget reduction greatly reduced the amount of information notices portal.

The project Radarsat-2 - a joint venture between the Canadian space Agency and private organization MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates. It is tasked to manage the probe and dispose of all its infrastructure, and distribute data from the satellite. Canadian space Agency contributes a fixed fee, which is 75% ensure the operation of the project.

the Ministry of defence uses Radarsat-2 mostly for monitoring coastline. If you fail to seek additional funds, 2017 will be the last, when the war Department will be able to get pictures from space, stresses the magazine.

The canadian public is concerned about the generosity of his government, writes the National Post. The government does not inform, what it would cost to taxpayers of information assistance to Ukraine. However, Paul Calandra assured that Kyiv has promised not to use the pictures to select the dislocation of enemy forces in the conflict area in Eastern Ukraine - Canada does not want to be involved with weapons of conflict.

It would be "detrimental to international relations and the security of our country," said parliamentary Secretary to the Canadian Prime Minister.
