Canada will always stand shoulder to shoulder with Ukraine.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said this at a joint press conference with President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Canada firmly stands shoulder to shoulder with Ukraine in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea by Russia and to what is happening in eastern Ukraine. Canada is the partner and protects the territorial integrity of Ukraine. Canada will always side with Ukraine," Trudeau said.

He noted that Canada would continue to support the activities of the OSCE mission in Ukraine.

The Prime Minister also informed that Canada would increase the number of its police officers who trained the Ukrainian colleagues and developed an effective program for Ukraine.

"In addition, Canada has made a commitment to provide $700 million since 2014," Trudeau added.
