This was announced by Foreign Minister of Canada Chrystia Freeland, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"Since the beginning of the crisis in 2013, Canada has been at the forefront of the international community’s support for Ukraine. Canada applauds reform efforts undertaken by Ukraine and believes that these new projects will help address Ukraine’s immediate national security and peacebuilding needs as its people pursue a secure, stable and prosperous future," Freeland said.
The Minister announced that additional $6.89 million in funding to Ukraine through five new initiatives would primarily focus on continued support of human rights monitoring, conflict resolution, and mine awareness, surveying and clearance.
"Canada is unequivocal in its support for the people of Ukraine. We continue to call for the protection of their rights, safety and security and respect for the sanctity of Ukraine’s borders," the Canadian Foreign Ministry states.
