Canada To Deploy Warship in Black Sea
The Canadian government is deploying the frigate HMCS Regina to the NATO mission formed in the Black Sea in response to the Ukraine crisis, report Canadian media.
Currently the warship is on a anti-terror post in the Arabian Sea.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper told MPs Wednesday that HMCS Regina would be sent to join one of NATO's standing maritime groups.
"Our government and our country remains steadfast in our support for the people of Ukraine in the face of ongoing militarism and aggression by the Putin regime," he said.
It is yet not clear when the frigate will be deployed. It is part of the increased Canadian military presence in the region, after earlier this week six CF-18 Hornet fighters and hundreds of military personnel left for Romania to assist NATO forces.
