The small town on the outskirts of Kiev was the scene of a battle between Russian and Ukrainian forces, while control of an air base was the main target of Vladimir Putin's army.

The President of the European Commission, the Italian Prime Minister and the Belgian Prime Minister accompanied the Canadian and Ukrainian heads of state.

“With an ingenuity and tenacity that showed the whole world what Ukrainians are capable of. As I said when I spoke to the Verkhovna Rada last June, you are the tip of the spear that will determine the course of the 21st century,” Mr. Trudeau added.

The politician signed a bilateral security agreement and also announced plans to send about $3.02 billion in financial and military aid to Kyiv in 2024, a statement from the Prime Minister's Office said.

The presence of Western leaders in the Ukrainian capital to show their support does not obscure this fact: American aid is blocked by Democratic President Joe Biden's Republican rivals and the Europeans have fallen behind.

For its part, the Trudeau government has promised to send 800 surveillance drones to Ukraine by the end of the spring ahead of its visit to Ukraine.
