Canadian Minister for International Development Harjit Sajan said:
"We are talking with the Red Cross about what is needed. We were ready to deploy a large field hospital. It turned out that there is no need for the entire hospital, so its individual elements will be deployed," he said on the air of the SVS TV channel.
The Minister stressed that such projects require significant coordination among numerous partners.
"The question is not only to have the necessary equipment, it is important to ensure that people are needed," Sadzhan specified.
He noted that the exact location of the future hospital is currently being determined, and added that a team from Canada's Department for International Development is already working in Eastern Europe, which is looking for ways to further humanitarian support.
"A lot of work is being done, but the needs are huge, given the massive crimes committed in Ukraine," summed up Harjit Sajjan.
Recall that earlier Canada decided to send about 150 military personnel to Poland to help Polish colleagues accept refugees from Ukraine; Ukrainian-speaking Canadians will be included in the mission.
