To gain political weight among the Ukrainian community, which plays a prominent role in the formation of social opinion in the country, Canada's conservative government, apparently, has decided to actively participate in the information war against Russia unleashed "big brother" Ottawa - Washington.
Own voters canadian authorities tell true tales about Russian maneuvers at sea and in the air.
Secretary of the Minister of national defense of Canada James Bezan presented in the Parliament's history, the level of tension and drama worthy of scoring in a camp before dawn. According to his statement, after arriving in the Black sea, the sailors of the Royal Navy was faced with domestic warships, and from the air were almost attacked by fighters of Armed forces of Russia. This version of events was supported by even the Minister of defence powers Jason Kenney.
Supporters of Canada in NATO, to put it bluntly: "fear Has big eyes", " explain somewhat less intimidating version of events. Agree to their statement, the canadian frigate HMCS Fredericton, part of a military grouping of the Alliance, no one was attacked. A more objective than Canadians witnesses report that the ships of the Navy were visible on the horizon, says The Ottawa Citizen. Russian military aircraft have chosen a decent height to maneuver, no strafing speech, obviously, or she is going.
Not to mention the fact that, NATO reported that the reaction of the Russian military forces adequate for what is happening. If the domestic fleet ships would have seemed off the coast of Canada, the Royal Navy would have done just as well - didn't flush eyes with these ships and monitor every action of people from other countries.
In political circles Canada assure that similar false conservative government pursues power in this situation only 1 goal - to make political points among the natives of Ukrainian origin and to enlist their support in the upcoming Federal elections in 2016, reports Russia Today. Power is strongly anti-Russian rate from Washington, because such a disposition to fight for the hearts and minds of voters is not surprising.
The hypothesis that the canadian government wants to sow among those living in the country of the hostile attitude of Ukrainians to Russia, announced and columnist for The Globe and Mail Martin Lawrence. Provocations inside powers are accompanied by an equally hostile actions and abroad. Apparently, the authorities intend, by sowing hatred of the Russian Federation, to continue to play the moment in your own campaign. Not to mention the fact that fictional confrontation, the calculation of the canadian political strategists, should increase support for the government's course.
Canada's Ukrainians are one of the state's minorities. According to data for 2011 276 thousand Canadians had completely Ukrainian origin, more than 975 thousand - partial. The entire population of the powers in all of this is estimated at 35 million people.
