Kyiv and Ottawa finalize the documents for sending the first shipment of Canadian sniper rifles to Ukraine.

“The finalization of documents for the supply of sniper rifles is at the final stage. The delay was through the fault of partners supplying the components, not the Canadian side.

He believes “this will open the door to expanding the range of cooperation.”
