Canada will send about 8,000 rounds of artillery ammunition and a dozen air defence missiles as part of Ottawa’s latest military aide to Kyiv, the Canadian defence ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.

Canada will also provide Ukraine with more than 1,800 rounds of training ammunition for Leopard 1 battle tanks donated by Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government, one of Ukraine’s most vocal international supporters, has committed over $1 billion in military aid to Kyiv since the start of the Russian invasion last year.

Canada has already announced it is donating eight Leopard 2 main battle tanks, which are expected to be in Ukraine in the coming weeks, the ministry said.
