Defence Minister Rob Nicholson says in response to a request from Ukraine, Canada is sending non-lethal military equipment to Kiev to help the country protect its eastern border.

A Hercules military plane with ”non-kinetic military equipment” is the first in a series of transport flights set to take off from the military base in Trenton.

That’s where Nicholson said the equipment will help Ukraine ”protect its eastern border against Russian aggression.”

The announcement came just hours after NATO’s secretary general said the military alliance stood ready to support Ukraine with advisers and assistance.
