Canada not to provide lethal weapons to Ukraine for free

Canada supports Ukraine's sovereignty, but it will not provide lethal weapons for free.

This is stated in a response by the Canadian government to a report by the Standing Committee on National Defense, which was made available to Ukrinform.

"The Government of Canada is committed to supporting Ukraine in its efforts to maintain its sovereignty, security, and stability, but is not actively considering the provision of lethal assistance to Ukraine in the form of military-to-military donations of lethal weapons," the response reads.

At the same time, the document states that the "Government of Canada remains in contact with the Government of Ukraine on its requests for military equipment."

As reported, in the December 2017 report by Canada's Standing Committee on National Defense entitled "Canada's Support to Ukraine in Crisis and Armed Conflict," MPs urged the government to provide Ukraine with lethal weapons.
