Trudeau pledges additional $40M in humanitarian aid to Ukraine

Canada will provide an additional CAD 50 million (about $39.5 million) in humanitarian and development aid to Ukraine.

“Canada provides up to 50 million in humanitarian and development aid to Ukraine. Of course, adding to a loan of up to 120 million we announced last week,” Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau announced during a press conference in Ottawa on January 26, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

He also called on Russia to "reduce tensions and engage in a meaningful dialogue to reach a peaceful diplomatic solution to the situation." Canada remains a firm friend of Ukraine and will continue to work closely with the Government of Ukraine and partners in the region, the Prime Minister said.

Trudeau added that Canada’s national defense minister Anita Anand would soon pay a visit to Latvia and Ukraine to visit Canadian units stationed there.

As reported, Canada announced the extension and expansion of the UNIFIER military training mission in Ukraine and non-lethal equipment supplies to Ukraine.

Last week, Canada pledged a CAD 120 million (about USD 92 million) loan to Ukraine to strengthen its economy and implement governance reforms.
