Canada will join international efforts to build the Ukrainian fleet of strike UAVs. This was announced by Canada’s Ministry of Defence, Ukrinform reports.

“To further develop Ukraine’s drone capabilities, Minister Blair committed to Canada joining the Ukraine Defence Contact Group’s Drone Capability Coalition, co-led by Latvia and the United Kingdom. As a member of the Capability Coalition, Canada will continue to look for ways to boost Ukraine’s drone capabilities," the statement said.

The ministry added that Canada had already handed Ukraine more than a hundred specialized drone cameras and last month announced an additional donation of over 800 made-in-Canada drones.

It should be recalled that Canada’s Defence Minister Bill Blair previously announced Canada's intention to significantly increase the production of 155 mm artillery shells, which Ukraine desperately requires repelling Russia’s onslaught.

Just a reminder, on March 7th, during his third visit to Kyiv, the UK Defence Secretary Grant Shapps announced his country's intention to allocate £325 million for the purchase of over 10,000 drones for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This announcement took place during a meeting between Shapps, the Chief of the General Staff of the British Armed Forces, Admiral Tony Radakin, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and Defence Minister Rustem Umeirov.

Among the drones to be provided to Ukraine at the expense of the United Kingdom will be FPV drones, 1000 combat UAVs, as well as reconnaissance and maritime drones.
