Manitoba will provide $25,000 for immediate humanitarian assistance in Ukraine, to be used for urgently needed first aid and medical supplies, Premier Greg Selinger announced Sunday.
"Manitobans stand in solidarity with our friends in Ukraine against the violence of this past week," Selinger said.
"We want the institutions of democracy and human rights to be respected in Ukraine and around the world."
Selinger commended the Ukrainian Canadian Congress Manitoba Provincial Council for its continuing work to bring together Manitobans to express strong concern over the situation unfolding in Ukraine.
The province will continue to work with the Ukrainian Canadian Congress to identify how funds can best be used effectively on the ground, he said.
