Canada to provide additional CAD 500 million in military assistance for Ukraine and impose additional sanctions on Russia

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Monday that his country will provide CAD 500 million (USD 376,5 million) in additional military assistance for Ukraine, to assist the Armed Forces of Ukraine in defending their country against Russia’s brutal and unjustifiable invasion, according to the PM’s official site.

Canada is also imposing additional sanctions against Russian individuals, targeting 23 members of the aggressor’s justice and security sectors. Earlier Canada imposed sanctions on over 1,400 Russian individuals and entities after Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

“Canada continues to support Ukraine as it defends its territory, sovereignty, and independence from Russia,” Trudeau said. “This additional military assistance will support Ukrainians as they bravely continue to fight against Vladimir Putin’s illegal invasion, while these new sanctions will put added pressure on those who support these acts of war. We, along with other members of the international community, will continue to use every tool at our disposal to hold Russia accountable for its brutal actions against Ukraine.”
