Available Expert - Canadian troops head to Latvia

Monday, June 12, 2017

Queen’s University military expert Stefanie Von Hlatky is available to comment on Canadian troops arriving in Latvia and the thought that this military presence could annoy the Russians. The first wave of 450 Canadian military personnel has arrived in Latvia as part of the NATO mission to deter any potential aggression from Russian.

“It’s necessary for the Canadian Armed Forces to think about communications behind campaign and for Government of Canada to engage different segments of Latvian society to secure political and military objectives there.”
