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.

More NATO military build up.

Russia should respond to this and send its Navy to surround the NATO warships the way the unarmed protestors in Eastern Ukraine are surrounding the tanks sent to kill them.
