Canadian military cooperation with Russia is over.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Tuesday that joint activities, ranging from meetings to exercises, are being cancelled. That is because of Russia’s activities in the Ukraine.
“I have this morning directed that, effective immediately, all planned bilateral activities between the Canadian Armed Forces and the military of the Russian Federation be suspended,” Harper said Tuesday.
“This includes exercises, such as NORAD’s Exercise Vigilant Eagle, and scheduled meetings,” he said.
