Canada sends three ships to Odessa with aid for the Ukrainian army
Odessa is awaiting the arrival of the second batch of Canadian military aid to the Ukrainian army. “We are expecting three ships with 56 containers to arrive on January 6, 7 and 13,” Advisor to the Ukrainian President Yuriy Biryukov said in an interview with the Ukrainian media
“We should note in this connection the recent appearance of National Guard’s reinforced troops and armored vehicles in Odessa, which the Ukrainian authorities described as “preventive counter-terrorism measures.”
It was previously reported that the airports in Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhya and Kharkiv were closed for a few days in mid-December as US and NATO military aircraft unloaded there.
There is no official information on the cargo, but, according to some sources, they delivered arms for the Ukrainian army.
On November 30, the first Canadian plane with military aid landed in Kiev. According to official information, it delivered protective gear, medicines and warm clothing for soldiers. Ottawa plans to send $11 million worth of military aid to Ukraine.
