Ukraine interested in Canadian defensive weapons – Klimkin

Ukraine would like Canada to provide it with defensive weapons.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said this in an interview with The Globe and Mail newspaper.

"The answer is definitely yes. It's the same approach towards the U.S. We need more defence equipment from our friends and partners," he told reporters at the Halifax International Security Forum this weekend, discussing requests to both countries.

According to him, "any modern army should be capable of fighting the Russians."

Klimkin added the Ukrainians would like to acquire more electronic-warfare and countermeasure equipment, as well as further help with logistics and training.
