Canada to send 200 armored vehicles to Ukraine

Canada will send another 200 armored vehicles to help with the defense of Ukraine, Defense Minister Anita Anand announced during a surprise visit to the beleaguered country on Wednesday.


The vehicles will be purchased from Roshel, a Mississauga, Ontario-based company, at a cost of $90 million and represent Canada's latest contribution in response to Russia's invasion last February.


This was announced this morning by Defense Minister Anita Anand:



Today I am pleased to confirm that Canada will donate an additional 200 armoured vehicles to the Ukrainian armed forces, valued at more than $90 million Canadian dollars. Over the past year Canada has been comprehensively engaged in military assistance to Ukraine, including artillery, anti-tank weapons, winter clothing, 39 armoured support vehicles and most recently an air defense system. Our military assistance totals more than $1 billion and Canada has committed $5 billion in combined humanitarian, economic and military aid.

Canadá envió ocho de los mismos vehículos blindados de transporte de personal Senator fabricados por Roshel a Ucrania la primavera pasada, y más recientemente prometió proporcionar un sistema de defensa aérea fabricado en Estados Unidos a un costo de $ 406 millones.


That announcement was met with some questions about why Canada was buying military equipment for Ukraine from the United States and why a similar system was not being purchased for the Canadian military.


The latest announcement came during a one-day trip to Ukraine in which Anand met with his Ukrainian counterpart, Oleksii Reznikov. He is also scheduled to attend a U.S.-led meeting on Ukraine in Germany on Friday.


The federal government says Canada has contributed about $5 billion in military, financial and humanitarian assistance since Russian forces crossed into Ukraine on Feb. 24, 2022.
