The Harper government has gone to extra lengths to insist Canadian military trainers will not be in harm's way when they deploy to western Ukraine to school battle-weary formations in the finer points of combat. At least one defence experts say he doesn't expect the USLed mission to raise the temperature of the simmering conflict in eastern Europe. Steve Saideman, the chair in international affairs at Carleton University, says Russia will likely make noise about the training mission and milk it for propaganda value, but likely won't seek to retaliate. (Saideman says another cautionary line would be if the West decided to ship arms and munitions to President Petro Poroshenko's government.)
