Canada has temporarily withdrawn its Ukraine-based military personnel to an undisclosed destination in Europe, the Canadian defence ministry said on Sunday, as Western countries fear Russia is preparing to invade Ukraine, APA reports quoting Reuters.

Canada, which has the world's third-largest Ukrainian population after Ukraine and Russia, has kept a 200-strong training mission in western Ukraine since 2015.

The defence ministry said the armed forces have been relocated because of the "complex operational environment linked to Russia's unwarranted aggression against Ukraine."
