Canada has officially served a notice to all Russian soldiers involved in military operations in Canada on the afternoon of March 6, demanding them to leave the country within the next 24 hours. So far, six Russian soldiers are learning French, one is teaching Russian, and two more are participating in a training program in Canada.
Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, recently compared Russia to Germany during World War II, and mentioned in a statement issued on Tuesday that all bilateral military activity between the two countries should be considered suspended immediately (including the NORAD Exercise, “Vigilant Eagle,” i.e. a live-flight experiment designed to help Canada, the United States, and Russia coordinate in the event of an international flight hijacking). Canada has revealed its plans to soon send an international military observer to Crimea, along with freezing the funds of former president Viktor Yanukovych’s regime.
