Canada Inks Free Trade Deal With Ukraine, Emphasizes Security Relationship

Canada’s Obama, Prime Minster Justin Trudeau, is now making good on his task of providing a young and well-spoken face to a continuation of oppression, authoritarianism, globalization, and imperialism, much like his American counterpart did with great success eight years ago. Thus, it was to the cheers of many that Trudeau met with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in Kiev to announce a greater “cooperation” between the two countries both in security and in trade, despite the announcement being nothing more than the telegraph of a continuation of imperialism and the giant sucking sound of “free trade.”

During the news conference, Poroshenko stated that Ukraine has requested 200 Canadian military trainers to remain in Ukraine after the 2017 expiration date for the current arrangement. While Canadian military “trainers” are currently deployed in Ukraine, Trudeau did not publicly commit to a continuation of the arrangement. Still, he re-emphasized Canada’s “commitment” and “relationship” with Ukraine both on the military and economic front. Given Trudeau’s statements about Russia and the Ukrainian crisis, however, informed observers tend to suspect that Canada’s military role in Ukraine will continue as needed.

Trudeau and Poroshenko also signed a mutual “Free Trade” deal at the meeting, another small step in the direction of globalization and the elimination of anything resembling high living standards for majority of the world’s workforce.

“We are right now focused on the training mission that is going so well for both Canadians and especially for the Ukrainian military,” Trudeau said. “As the situation evolves, we will continue to monitor and look at the best way we can continue to support and help Ukraine and we will do so in the spirit of collaboration and friendship that has always existed between Canada and Ukraine.”

Both Trudeau and Poroshenko then capitalized on the opportunity to condemn Russia for defending itself against NATO aggression by attempting to portray the crisis in Ukraine as that of Russia’s making.

“It is obvious that Ukraine has made some extremely important and difficult steps in Parliament and in their institutions to live up to their responsibilities on Minsk. And it’s also quite clear that on the security side of the Minsk implementation, Russia has not been a positive partner,” Trudeau said.“They have not been moving responsibly or appropriately on things like ceasefires or international observers, and we are very hopeful that continued international unity and clarity around the expectations that we advance with Minsk are going to continue to put the necessary pressure on Russia to follow the process and act on the security concerns.”

Poroshenko claimed that Ukraine has fulfilled 95 percent of its political obligations under the Minsk agreement and all of the security requirements.

“With that situation,” Trudeau continued, “it is vitally important for us that Russia meet the security criteria for launching the political process. This is Russia who should make a disengagement. This is Russia who should remove the heavy artillery, weapons, multi-rocket launch systems, tanks, from their front lines.”

Beginning in 2013, the United States and NATO powers via a network of Western (largely American) color revolution organizations, NGOs, and U.S. agencies engineered a color revolution that resulted in the collapse of the Yanukovich government and a subsequent fascist crackdown on ethnic Russians and legitimate dissent in the country. After a series of major provocations and military support given to the Kiev fascists by NATO and a campaign of terror launched against the populations in Eastern Ukraine, Russia stepped in to mediate and to support the Eastern separatists. Russia stills denies military support to the separatists, however, and, in 2014, officially annexed the Crimea after Crimean residents overwhelmingly voted to join Russia.
