Canada to provide over $24 million for air defense systems for Ukraine

Sep 17, 2023

Canadian Defense Minister Bill Blair announces his intention to allocate 33 million Canadian dollars (over 24 million US dollars) to purchase air defense systems for Ukraine.


This was reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to The Guardian.

According to the Canadian minister, the funds will be allocated to a British-led partnership that buys equipment for Ukrainian air defense to help Ukraine repel attacks by Russian missiles and drones.

The partnership, which also includes the United States, the Netherlands, and Denmark, plans to buy hundreds of short- and medium-range air defense missiles and related systems.

This contribution, according to Blair, is part of the C$500 million in military aid to Kyiv that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced in June.
