Oleksandr Linchevskyy took part in a round table discussion with Justin Trudeau
Leading members of change and representatives from the most imperative areas in Ukraine, discussed the situation in Ukraine and the process of its reform.
Medical reform in Ukraine began from the most important issue of changing the system of first aid. It is critical that Canada supports these changes and assists us in implementing them.
Currently, there is no combat unit of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, the Ukrainian National Guard, the State Border Guard of Ukraine, the Security Service of Ukraine, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, which has not yet gone through training with Patriot Defence. The Canadian government (Embassy of Canada in Ukraine), along with Canadian, Ukrainian and other international philanthropists supported Ukrainian warfighters by sending Ukraine thousands of NATO standard first aid kits.
Additionally, the Prime Minister focused on the rehabilitation of veterans, and the need to improve their physical and mental health. Thanks to Canada’s aid, today, our partner the School of Rehabilitation Medicine at the Ukrainian Catholic University is admitting its first students, who will begin their studies on the basis of international standards, in September of this year.
We are very grateful to Canada for its support and express our hope that we will continue to cooperate!
