Canada plans to deploy additional observers with the OSCE SMM, as well as to provide financial assistance in the amount of $ 13 million for ATO area victims. This was announced by the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau at a press conference with President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko today, July 11, in Kyiv, according to a QHA correspondent.
“We agreed to deploy extra observers to a special OSCE monitoring mission. We will also allocate $13 million in humanitarian assistance to victims of the conflict in ATO area. Canada will also send 20 police trainers to help their Ukrainian colleagues in reforming the police department,” the head of the Canadian government stated.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko noted that the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau repeatedly mentioned in Warsaw the issues of de-occupation of the Russia-annexed Crimea, as well as support for Ukraine.
According to Poroshenko, Canada – from the first days of the annexation - has supported the territorial integrity and independence of Ukraine assisting in the development and maintenance of peace on its territory.
