Canadian Foreign Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne announced his Government’s intention to allocate $ 2 million to Ukraine to support the police. The press service of the Foreign Ministry of Canada stated this.
"The minister also announced the allocation of more than $ 2 million over three years to help strengthen the capacity of the National Police of Ukraine in planning, implementing, monitoring and reviewing reform processes," the report said.
Champagne emphasized Ottawa's continued commitment to Kyiv’s ambitious reform efforts and the involvement of women in the efforts to ensure peace and security.
The head of the Canadian Foreign Ministry also recalled that his country was working to uphold the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine in the face of the Russian aggression.
As we reported before, Canadian lawyers who previously successfully sued Iran are seeking class action status in a lawsuit on behalf of victims aboard a Ukrainian plane shot down over Tehran in January 2020, looking for at least $1.1 billion in compensation.
The suit names Iran, its supreme leader, the elite Revolutionary Guards and others as defendants. The lead plaintiff in the case is anonymous, preliminarily identified as John Doe, and described as immediate family to a victim identified as Jack Doe.
