OTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he’s not going to provide more details about his government’s pledge to send a new round of military aid to Ukraine — at least not yet.
The prime minister says he doesn’t want to outline the specifics of what will be sent, and where the government is getting it from, because of security concerns.
Trudeau says he wants to be careful about what he publicizes about the delivery of military equipment in the context of Russia’s unprovoked invasion in Ukraine.
He says he hopes to share more in the coming days about what is being sent to Ukraine.
The prime minister made the remarks during a media availability in Kitchener, Ont., where he is promoting his federal budget’s investments in housing.
Trudeau first announced Tuesday that Canada will send heavy artillery to Ukraine in response to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s request.
