    Canada will allocate $8.1 million to support the national police reform in Ukraine, Canadian Foreign Minister Stephane Dion said Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Canada has already sent 20 police officers to serve as advisers for their Ukrainian counterparts.

    ​In his next post on Twitter Dion added, that Canadian assistance is aimed at helping Ukraine national police "to become more effective, accountable & community-focused."

    In September Canadian Armed Forces Military Police provided three-week training to their Ukrainian counterparts in preparation for a NATO-led exercise in 2017.
