Canada will send anti-tank weapons and upgraded ammunition to support Ukraine amid global rage over Russia’s invasion.
Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau disclosed this at a news conference on Monday.
“Yesterday, we announced that we would be sending new shipments of military supplies, including body armour, helmets, gas masks and night-vision goggles.
“Today, we’re announcing that we will be supplying Ukraine with anti-tank weapons systems and upgraded ammunition,” said Trudeau.
Trudeau added that the Canadian government plans to prohibit all imports of Russian crude oil.
This is in addition to earlier shipments of lethal and non-lethal equipment to Ukraine.
The Canadian government is also carrying out a series of sanctions on Russia, including closing off Canadian airspace to Russian planes and prohibiting Canadian financial institutions from engaging in any transaction with the Russian Central Bank.
