OTTAWA, September 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Canada’s government will offer financial and humanitarian aid to Ukraine, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Wednesday after a meeting with visiting Ukrainian President Petr Poroshenko.
The Canadian prime minister said his country would continue its assistance to Ukraine to help it consolidate efforts to improve its economy. Harper said Ukraine could always rely on a helping hand from Canada.
The press service of the government told ITAR-TASS that the two leaders had agreed on a loan to Ukraine. The sum however was not specified. Most probably, it will be a 200 million U.S. dollar loan Harper spoke about in the spring.
Apart from that, Canada promised a humanitarian aid to Ukraine. It will include medicines, foodstuffs, drinking water, hygiene products, tents and other goods in need for refugees from areas of combat operations in eastern Ukraine.
