ANKARA – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has pledged to send another shipment of “highly-specialized” military equipment to Ukraine.
Following his phone talk with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Trudeau said on Twitter: “I let him know that Canada will send Ukraine another shipment of highly-specialized military equipment. We discussed sanctions against Russia and humanitarian assistance for Ukraine, too.”
“Canadians have been inspired by the bravery and resiliency of Ukrainians and the leadership the President has shown, and I know they are eager to hear directly from him,” he added.
Zelenskyy, for his part, wrote on Twitter: “Talked to my friend Justin Trudeau about Ukraine-Canada defense cooperation and how to increase sanctions pressure on Russia. Agreed on further diplomatic steps. Canada stands with Ukraine. We feel it every day.”
In late February, Canada said it would send new shipments of military supplies, including anti-tank weapons, ammunition, and cash aid to Ukraine.
