Canada wants to send heavy artillery to defend Ukraine against Russian attack. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in New Brunswick that this was a request from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Details of the weapons and their costs should therefore be presented in the coming days.
Trudeau is in close contact with Zelenskyy. Canada is very responsive to Ukraine’s needs, Trudeau added. The Ukrainians have so far “fought like heroes”.
Heavy weapons also from the USA
The United States had also announced that it would supply Ukraine with heavy weapons, including artillery. The promised 18 field howitzers are to be handed over to Ukraine “very, very soon,” said Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.
Trudeau also unveiled new sanctions against 14 other Russian allies of President Vladimir Putin, including his two adult daughters. Your assets in Canada will be frozen and you will no longer be able to do business there. In the past few days, the US and Great Britain had imposed similar sanctions.
