President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy says Canada and Ukraine are working on a new package to help Kiev fight Russia.

Zelenskyy made the comments on the sidelines G7 Summit in Hiroshima, Japan, when asked by Global News whether Canada had done enough in recent months to support the Ukrainian war effort.

“I would like you to understand that we have strong relations with Canada,” Zelenskyy said.

“We’re working on something … that maybe can’t be publicly commented (on).”

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Zelenskyy had met earlier in the day and Canada did not announce any new weapons or aids for Ukraine after they spoke.

That is in contrast to allies such as the United States, which announced a $375 million package for Ukraine, which included new ammunition, artillery and armored vehicles.

On Thursday, Canada announced additional sanctions against Russian individuals and companies. Trudeau also said Sunday he was open to the Royal Canadian Air Force training Ukrainian pilots.

“We’re certainly not opposed to helping in all sorts of different ways,” Trudeau said.

Canada has sent billions in aid and weapons to Ukraine since the start of the war, including a recent delivery of eight Leopard 2 tanks.
