I thought Russia was running out of weapons, ammo, hardware, etc. I thought Putin was dying, like of a different disease each two weeks. I thought Ukraine was winning EASY thanks to the heroism of The Ghost of Kiev and Ben Stiller. Who could imagine that “evacuation” actually means surrender, “strategic withdrawal” means running for the hills dropping weapons, leaving wounded and equipment after total rout? How are they going to call Ukraine’s unconditional surrender? May be strategic evacuation across the polish border.
"The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation continue the special military operation in Ukraine.

Russian Defence Ministry Briefing Friday 8th July 2022
Hello? Dutch farmer's protest? No coverage yet?
Stop provoking a larger war, stop using my tax dollars to fund war while Canadians are struggling here at home. Not our war!
Quit throwing our tax dollats away or are you stealing the money? seems a lot of that going on over there Send them im sure they will turn up online for sale like most of the others or destroyed
💰[🙃]💰 Waltz Of The Billions ($£€): Nearly 1 Trillion (1000 Billions) total currencies conveyed to Ukraine while the Occident miserably suffers Global Shortages! 🏚🏚🏚
I wish Canada would encourage peace- Ukraine/ Russia is not a simple situation with clear good and bad guys. Splitting the country may be the only solution- Pakistan leaving India as an example
yes, go ahead and put more stress on our already-ruined economy
Wow she asks Anand an actually tough question at 7:00 mins! “Can you sympathize with Canadians who are concerned about human rights abuses being perpetrated by the very people we are selling LAVS to?” Thank you!!!!
Love how this Minister keeps switching up the Saudi question to the Ukrain .. typical. LAVS heading to the Ukrain is one thing what about the support for those LAVS such as spare parts. Human rights are the priority of this government…great way to demonstrate that by selling war machines to them.
Why, so Russia can make them go boom? We need to stay out of this.
Yay, sending more equipment away while we're already forced to scale back our military capabilities due to government incompetence. It feels like we're being set up for invasion.
Why are we destroying Ukraine
All while banning weapons for legal gun owners, hypocrites.
Can’t you just leave Britney Spears alone… oops wrong video.
Wry important, thanks
39 light armoured vehicles? That’s it? Pretty pathetic I say.
Not enough Canada . You are weak
39? Not 40, not 38? This must be the magical number to defeat Russia, lol. When exactly will these "armoured vehicles" be completed? How long will it take to get them to Ukraine so they can be destroyed by Russia?
They could care less about human rights. If they did there would be unconditional condemnation of Saudia Arabia and they would steer entirely clear of Ukraine.
Quite a Ukrainian flag there in the BG
it takes years and decades for them to decide what piece of equipment for ourself. but when it comes to someones else, those decision can be made within day. you guys makes me sick. in the mean time we still use inglis browning 9mm hypower. shame on you. Y2FF
Freeland is an imposter.
Try pumping a little support into Canada instead of always elsewhere…
While crushing cdn military..
Our country has its own problems to sort out. We have a PM that does not have Canadian interest in mind. Such a disgrace.
All tax payers money is going to a foreign country to buy weapons but my question did they first consult Canadians to approve the sending of weapons or they are just doing it for their own benefits
It's so lovely! Double kickbacks! Kickbacks for loans to Ukraine and then kickbacks for military contracts. Couple of truckloads of Ukrainians would be accepted to Canada to work in Manitoba in positions not filled by locals: swineherds, cement mixers and room attendants.
