OTTAWA, May 24. /TASS/. Canada is sending Kiev an additional shipment of more than 20,000 rounds for 155-mm M777 Howitzers that were given to Ukraine by Western countries earlier, Canadian Defense Minister Anita Anand said in televised remarks on Tuesday.

"Work is already underway to deliver this aid to Ukraine as quickly as possible," she said.

The minister said the shipment is valued at 98 million Canadian dollars, or $76.3 million.

Western countries including Canada and the US earlier provided Ukraine with US-made M777 Howitzers that have the range of up to 30 km. Ottawa sent four of these guns.
