Defence Minister Anita Anand has sidestepped questions about whether Canada is prepared to donate modern battle tanks to Ukraine.

The issue came up repeatedly as Anand paid a surprise visit to the capital Kyiv, where her Ukrainian counterpart stressed the need for tanks to help in his country's war with Russia.

Earlier today, Anand announced that Ottawa is sending another 200 armoured vehicles to help the Ukrainian military.

Ottawa is buying the vehicles from an Ontario company at a cost of 90-million dollars.
