Canada is sending another $11M shipment of non-lethal equipment to Ukraine
26 November 2014 22:52

Defence Minister Rob Nicholson made the announcement at a news conference this morning in Ottawa, along with his parliamentary secretary, James Bezan, and Ukrainian Ambassador to Canada Vadym Prystaiko.

The $11 million will be used for equipment and training, including:

  • $5 million for protective gear, including surplus Canadian Forces cold-weather gear such as jackets, hats and gloves.
  • $3 million for explosives disposal equipment.
  • $1 million for communications equipment.
  • $1 million for night and thermal vision equipment, plus binoculars.
  • $1 million for medical training, including a mobile field hospital.

"This is a substantial contribution, this is equipment that Ukraine has specifically asked for and it's equipment Ukraine urgently needs to face the continued aggression from the Putin regime," Nicholson said.

The first shipment of clothing, which Nicholson said will dress about 30,000 Ukrainian military personnel, will leave CFB Trenton by plane on Thursday and is expected to arrive on Friday. 

Other equipment is being sent by sea in early 2015.
