Canada may Donate Decommissioned CRV7 Rockets to Ukraine
According to the CBC channel, Ottawa may donate CRV7 air-to-ground attack rockets that are slated for disposal to Ukraine.

The broadcast shows that Canada possesses 83,300 CRV7 unguided 2.75-inch (70mm) rockets in its inventory. Around the beginning of the 2000s, these missiles were decommissioned. The television outlet reports that the Defence Ministry is currently contemplating the possibility of transferring them to Kyiv.

During a session of the Canadian Parliament on Friday, Pierre Poilievre, the leader of the Official Opposition of Canada, also urged that these munitions be shipped to Ukraine. According to the Canadian Ministry of Defence, the donation is being considered, which has confirmed this.

In a statement released to the public, a spokesperson for Canadian Defence Minister Bill Blair acknowledged that Justin Trudeau's government is considering the donation.

Since the beginning of the full-scale war with Russia, the Canadian government has reportedly provided Ukraine with more than $1.8 billion in military assistance.
