More Canadian soldiers will soon be headed overseas to take part in a training mission. Only this contingent won't be going to the Middle East -- they will head to Ukraine. Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Defence Minister Jason Kenney announced today that the troops will join American and British soldiers in offering Ukrainian troops instruction on logistics and military policing, as well as countering mines and improvised explosives devices. Chief of Defence Staff General Tom Lawson says the troops will be in a secure region, well away from the fighting that's taken place in the east. (The troops will join American and British soldiers early this summer. The Canadians will offer Ukrainian troops their expertise in countering mines and improvised explosives devices, skills painfully learned during the five-year combat mission in Kandahar.)
