Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy discussed on Monday with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau the establishment of “long-term defense cooperation” between the two countries.

“No matter how long it takes. This is how long we will support Ukraine,” Trudeau wrote on Twitter after a telephone conversation with Zelensky.

And he turned to the Ukrainian president, saying: “I promise you this”, adding that “Canada will continue its presence there through its military, humanitarian and financial assistance.”

Zelenskiy also tweeted that he and Trudeau discussed creating a “long-term defense cooperation program” between the two countries.

Last year, Ottawa provided more than one billion Canadian dollars in military aid to Ukraine, which included armored vehicles, anti-aircraft missiles, howitzers, ammunition and Leopard tanks.
