It came as the Russian invasion of Ukraine continued for the fifteenth day.
Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki told reporters that his meeting with Canada’s Justin Trudeau focused on humanitarian aid for Ukraine, as well as the role of the NATO alliance amid the Russian aggression.
Poland’s President Andrzej Duda also met Trudeau to discuss assistance for war refugees from Ukraine and ways to fund the post-war reconstruction of Poland’s eastern neighbour.
Afterwards, the Canadian PM vowed to spend CAD 117 million (EUR 83.5 million) on measures to welcome Ukrainians to Canada, thus “lessening the burden on countries such as Poland.”
“Canada will help you,” he declared, as quoted by the state PAP news agency.
The Russian assault on Ukraine began on February 24.
Poland on Thursday reported it had accepted 1,43 million people escaping the Russian invasion.
