Canada to donate more than 800 drones worth $95M to Ukraine: defence minister

Canada will donate more than 800 SkyRanger R70 multi-mission Unmanned Aerial Systems to Ukraine
to help in its war with Russia, Canada’s Defence Minister Bill Blair announced on Monday.

Blair added that the drones, sourced from Teledyne in Waterloo, Ont., have been valued at over $95 million and that the donation was funded by the $500 million in military assistance announced by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during a Kyiv visit last year.

“Today’s announcement ensures that Ukraine has the drones it needs to detect and identify targets which are critical to Ukraine’s ongoing fight. Canada will stand with Ukraine for as long as it takes,” Blair said.

Since February 2022, Canada had committed over $9.7 billion in aid to Ukraine, including over $2.4 billion in military assistance, the country’s defense ministry said. Most recently, during a meeting with NATO allies in Brussels on Feb. 14, Blair said that Canada will donate over $60 million to Ukraine.
