The Canadian government also introduced numerous sanctions against the Russian Federation, deployed Canadian armed forces in Europe to train Ukrainian soldiers, and took in more than 175,000 Ukrainians.
During the talks, the leaders of Ukraine and Canada are expected to discuss Ukraine's defence needs, further financial and humanitarian support for Kyiv, as well as economic and investment cooperation. Later on Friday, according to Canadian media, Zelenskyy will address Canadian lawmakers.
