Canada will assign over 7.5 million dollars for the humanitarian needs of Ukraine. Pavlo Klimkin, Ukraine's foreign minister said that after his meeting with Canadian colleague Christine Freeland. It took place in Kyiv on Thursday evening.

'I would like to thank Christine for the great news she brought us; getting over 7.5 million dollars worth aid is extremely important. However, what matters, even more, is that our Canadian friends and partners included Ukraine on the control list of the countries where they can send weaponry. It's not only a formal symbol or a powerful political signal but also a very special assistance,' he said.

Previously, Christine Freeland met with Ukrainian leader Petro Poroshenko. Both sides negotiated on Donbas-related issues; specifically, they agreed that Russia intends to undermine the implementation of Minsk agreements.

Poroshenko recognized Ottawa’s part in promoting the Crimean resolution approved by the UN General Assembly. He also urged Canada to contribute to the group of countries supporting the de-occupation of Crimea.
