The Canadian government will extend another security assistance package to Ukraine, focusing largely on small arms and ammunition, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau said during a joint press briefing with Ukrainian PM Denys Shmyhal on April 11.

Trudeau noted that Canada has already provided substantial military aid – tanks, armored personnel carriers, ammunition, and other military equipment.

“Today we announce more weapons (for Ukraine),” said Trudeau.

“We’re sending 21,000 automatic rifles, 38 machine guns, and over 2.4 million rounds of ammunition. This will help the Armed Forces of Ukraine to continue defending their freedom and fight for Ukraine’s territorial integrity.”
