Canadian Armed Forces aircraft have transported more than 1,360 tonnes of military aid intended for Ukraine since March.

According to an Ukrinform correspondent, Canadian Defense Minister Anita Anand wrote this on Twitter.

“Our Royal Canadian Air Force detachment in Europe has now transported 3 million pounds [more than 1,360 tonnes] of aid in support of Ukraine since March 2022 – and we continue to fly this crucial cargo donated by Canada, our partners, and Allies,” she said.

She added that “Canada’s military support for Ukraine is robust and unwavering.”

This year’s Canadian budget envisages more than $400 million for the purchase of modern weapons for Ukraine. In addition, since the beginning of the Russian invasion, Canada has given Ukraine tens of thousands of weapons from its own stocks, including seven long-range howitzers and high-precision ammunition for them.
