The official website of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reports.

Canada is allocating $50 million to strengthen the artillery of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. With these funds, they plan to purchase additional ammunition for 155 mm M777 howitzers.

Canada is also purchasing 18 UAV cameras for Ukraine, as well as a package for their repair and maintenance.

$15 million will be spent on space exploration: the purchase of high-resolution satellite images.

Another $1 million of this amount will go to infantry weapons and ammunition.

The Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau said in Kyiv that these are anti-tank weapons:
