Canada announces new military donations for Ukraine



Minister of National Defence Bill Blair participated virtually in the 18th Ukraine Defense Contact Group meeting, hosted by the United States.


The meeting brought together representatives from more than 50 countries, who reaffirmed their commitment to providing Ukraine with the critical military support it needs.


At the meeting, Minister Blair announced a new donation of 10 Multirole Boats from Zodiac Hurricane Technologies, valued at approximately $20 million.


Each boat will come with a sophisticated sensor, navigation, and communications system.


The delivery of these boats with training is expected to be completed by late spring 2024.


Starting next month, Canada will provide civilian instructors, planes, and support staff contracted from Montreal-based Top Aces Inc. to contribute to Denmark and France’s training efforts on F-16's.


Canada is also providing English language training to Ukrainian Air Force personnel at the Canadian Forces Language School.
