UKRAINIAN President Volodymyr Zelensky visited the Canadian Parliament today to bolster more support from Western allies in the war immediately after securing a further $325 million (£265m) from the neighbouring United States.
Mr Zelensky flew into Canada’s capital late on Thursday after meetings with US President Joe Biden and politicians in Washington.
The Ukrainian leader was expected to speak before the Canadian Parliament later in the today after the Morning Star goes to print.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave Mr Zelensky a warm welcome upon arrival in Ottawa, calling the visit an opportunity to show “how strongly and unequivocally we stand with Ukraine.”
Canada has provided more than $8.9 billion Canadian dollars (£5.4bn) in support to Ukraine in what Mr Trudeau’s government calls the highest per-capita direct financial support to the nation in the G7.
Mr Zelensky is facing some pushback from allied nations and blocs on support, with Republicans in the US increasingly opposed to sending more funding.
And cracks have also emerged in Europe after Poland said that it is no longer sending arms to Ukraine.
Military support for Ukraine was put into action today after the country’s forces struck the headquarters of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet with missiles.
A serviceman was missing after the attack in the port city of Sevastopol, which left the main building on fire.
Ukraine has increasingly targeted naval facilities in the Crimean peninsula in recent weeks while the brunt of its summer counteroffensive makes slow gains in the east and south of Ukraine, the Institute for the Study of War said Thursday in its daily assessment of the conflict.
Previous attacks resulted in several civilian deaths.
