Official Ottawa first planned to find out the needs of the Ukrainian army and the effectiveness of these missiles.

Canada is considering transferring CRV7 air-to-ground missiles to Ukraine, which the Canadian government plans to dispose of. CBC reports.

The leader of Canada’s opposition Conservative Party, Pierre Poilievre, requested that the CRV7 missiles be sent to Ukraine during a parliamentary meeting on Friday, February 2.

“Instead of forcing Canadians to pay millions of dollars to decommission these weapons, the weapons should be given to Ukraine, which can use them to defend its sovereignty,” he stressed.

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Defense confirmed that the Canadian government is considering supplying missiles to Ukraine. But before sending missiles to Ukraine, it is necessary to know the needs of the Ukrainian army and the effectiveness of the missiles, according to the Canadian Ministry of Defense.

The problem with providing these missiles is that the country has tens of thousands of them and their engines, but not all of them have warheads.

CRV7 missiles are called “Cold War weapons” in Canada. They were produced in the 1980s and discontinued in the early 2000s.

The CRV7 is a Canadian 70 mm aircraft unguided missile with a folding tail. It was a by-product of a project to develop high-speed solid-propellant rockets undertaken in the late 1950s by the Canadian Defense Research and Development Establishment (CADRE), as part of the missile defense program.

The Canadian Department of Defense has 83,303 of these missiles.

We remind you that Canada has given a draft security agreement to Ukraine. Ottawa believes these should be assurances, not guarantees, but they see no problem with this.
