Canada is considering augmenting its military mission in Ukraine amid US and British intelligence on alarming movements of Russian troops along the Ukrainian border.

This is reported by The Globe and Mail , citing two informed sources.

The newly appointed Minister of Defense of Canada, Anita Anand, allows the transfer of several hundred additional troops in support of Canadian soldiers who are already in Ukraine as part of a military mission.

Other options include redeploying a warship to the Black Sea or redeploying some of the CF-18 fighters currently in Romania.

It is noted that any military reinforcement sends a clear signal to Putin regarding the consequences of a probable invasion of Ukraine.

The situation on the border of the Russian Federation and Ukraine

On November 11, Bloomberg published an article discussing the risks of a full-scale Russian attack on Ukraine. The agency noted that in the circles of American and European diplomats, they are seriously worried about the current movement of Russian troops towards the Ukrainian border.

Moscow itself denies this , calling the autumn redeployment of troops a “show of force.”

In early November, information began to appear in the Western media with reference to satellite imagery data about the active movement of the Russian military to the border with Ukraine. 

At the same time, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine denied this information.

This is the second likely wave of aggravation on the Russian-Ukrainian border since March 2021. However, according to Bloomberg, so far the concentration of Russian troops takes place mainly at night, while in the spring the Kremlin openly threatened to attack, putting political pressure on Ukraine, the EU and the United States.

Russian (Ukrainian) Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said that the threat of a full-scale military invasion of Ukraine by Russia does exist, but Kiev (Kyiv) is doing the necessary work to prevent such a scenario from being realized.
