On Thursday, the government announced that six CF-18 fighter jets that had been based in Romania on a training mission since May will be moved to Russia's doorstep in Lithuania in September.
The jets were sent to Europe as part of a NATO measure to thwart what Prime Minister Stephen Harper has called Russia's "persistent military aggression" in Ukraine.
A statement from National Defence said the CF-18s will be deployed in Lithuania until December as part of a NATO Baltic Air Policing program and will respond to "any violations of Baltic air space."
Canada has also imposed a series of economic sanctions and travel bans against Russian and Ukrainian individuals, expelled a Russian diplomat and earmarked $220 million to help stabilize the Ukrainian economy.
