The Canadian government announced on Thursday that it will send troops to train Ukrainian soldiers on how to effectively counter Russian aggression.
Canadian Defence Minister Anita Anand said that up to 225 Canadian Army personnel will be deployed in the UK to provide combat training to Kyiv’s forces.
The training will see Canadian troops collaborate with their counterparts from the UK, New Zealand, and the Netherlands in teaching Ukrainian soldiers over four months.
“Training missions like this, assisting our allies and our partners when they are under attack, is what we do,” Anand explained.
She further stated that Canada prioritizes supporting Ukraine amid increasing Russian attacks on key Ukrainian regions.
