EMBASSY IN KYIV REOPENED

It was his second unannounced visit to Ukraine since the Russian invasion began in February last year.

Trudeau last travelled to Ukraine just over a year ago, where he reopened the Canadian Embassy in Kyiv and met Zelenskyy in person for the first time since the war began.

UKRAINE CONTINUES TO DEFEND

Ukraine's General Staff said on Saturday that "heavy battles" were underway. It gave no details but said Russian forces were "defending themselves" and launching air and artillery strikes in Ukraine's southern Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions.

Meanwhile, Britain's defense ministry reported on Saturday there has been "significant Ukrainian operations" in the country's east and south since Thursday morning, with gains in some areas.
