Canada will contribute to developing the Ukrainian defence industry
The Ukrainian diplomat did not rule out that the documents might be signed within the framework of the NATO summit in Warsaw featuring Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko and Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
However, it is possible that the final decision on agreements would be taken during Trudeau's visit to Kyiv scheduled for the next week.
Under the defence agreement, weapons will be supplied to Ukraine. Canada will also contribute to developing the Ukrainian defence industry. Previously, Canada supplied medicines, uniforms, blankets and military boats to Ukraine.
In the meantime, five countries are working on the issue of supplying lethal weapons to Ukraine, which is subject to Russian aggression. This was announced this week, at a meeting between the US Secretary of State John Kerry and Chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament Andriy Parubiy.
