Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky arrived in Canada on a visit that was officially announced just a few hours before.
This was reported by the Canadian media outlet CTV News which also published a video of the President’s arrival to Ottawa.
He is planning to meet with top Canadian officials and members of the Ukrainian Canadian community, the publication notes.
Zelensky is also set to address Parliament on Friday — his first in-person address since the war began. He and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are expected to sign an agreement to continue strengthening economic ties between the two countries.
The Ukrainian leader spoke at the UN General Assembly in New York City this week, where Trudeau appealed to other nations to support Ukraine's war effort and called on Russia to withdraw its troops.
Canada has provided more than $4.95 billion in financial support and $1.8 billion in military aid for Ukraine.
