What are Foreign affairs?
The Report was adopted at the top priority and security meeting of ministers in charge of defence and international affairs (foreign affairs) Canadian.
Canada’s thermionic espionage service forewarn Thursday that Russian-based hackers are earmarking censorious equipment during International Politics. Minister Melanie Joly said Moscow would face terrible repercussions sanctions if it makes further moves against Ukraine.
“They are aware of foreign cyber threat initiatives, including by Russian-backed actors, to attack Canadian critical infrastructure network operators, their logistical and information technology,” the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security, a part of the Telecommunication Intelligence Apparatus, said.
Overall, the centre advocates for increased vigilance and more robust IT security measures. It also advised critical infrastructure network operators to be prepared to “isolate condemned infrastructure components.”
Joly received the warning as she wrapped up a three-country tour with her European Union counterpart in Brussels, following stops in Ukraine and France. Russia has deployed nearly 100,000 troops, tanks and other heavy equipment along Ukraine’s borders, raising concerns of an invasion across Europe. Russia has disputed this intention.

On Thursday, Joly and her European Union counterpart, Josep Borrell, projected a warm image of transatlantic solidarity at a news conference.
If Russia takes additional military action to undermine Ukrainian sovereignty, Joly said Canada would join its friends in slapping punitive sanctions on Russian officials.
“Russia has two options under the freshly initiated diplomatic process: serious conversation or harsh consequences,” Joly added.
“Of course, we value the EU’s cooperation on a variety of deterrence measures, including economic sanctions. Canada will be prepared to take additional steps, especially in the financial sector.”
However, no new Canadian measures were revealed.
On Thursday, the US imposed further restrictions on four pro-Russian Ukrainians, including two sitting members of parliament who are suspected of being involved in Russian intelligence services’ ongoing disinformation activities.
According to Joly, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is considering “a range of solutions,” who is gathering information this week.
According to Canadians of Ukrainian origin, Joly travelled to Europe with nothing substantial to provide in response to a series of requests from Ukraine. More sanctions, a pledge to help provide Ukraine’s military with weaponry, and an extension of Canada’s military training mission for Ukraine forces beyond March 31 are among them.
Joly was “ill-prepared to deal with the situation in Ukraine, and this reflects very adversely on the Canadian government,” according to a Wednesday email from Yvan Baker, the Liberal chair of the Canada-Ukraine Parliamentary Friendship Group the chairman of the League of Ukrainian Canadians.
The email was forwarded to Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland, a former foreign minister and journalist of Ukrainian heritage. Because of her criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s autocratic government, she has been barred from entering the nation.
“At the same time, the Russian media makes jokes about Canada’s deployment of special forces to Ukraine, claiming that their primary purpose is to plan and secure the evacuation of Canadians from the Canadian embassy,” wrote Orest Steciw, the group’s executive director.
Ihor Michalchyshyn, executive director of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress, believes the moment has come for Canada to back up its words with action, noting the United Kingdom’s decision to deliver anti-tank weapons to Ukraine and other NATO countries’ contributions.
