Alberta Premier Jason Kenney has been a steadfast supporter of Ukraine and the Ukrainian people for many years.

On March 4th, Premier Kenney announced his government would be sending over $10 million of support for the Ukrainian cause in the wake of Putin's war of aggression. It was announced that $5 million of that aid package would go toward the #UniteWithUkraine campaign.

Ukraine's President accused Vladimir Putin and the Russian military of war crimes for the shelling and bombing of Kharkiv. The BBC reports that at least 10 people were killed in 35 injured when an opera house, concert hall, and government office were hit by Russian attacks.

There are early reports that the Russian army is in the city of Kharkiv, Ukraine. Ukraine's second largest city had been under attack earlier by rockets and bombs from Russian aircraft. According to the Kyiv Independent, paratroopers landed in the city and attacked a military medical centre.
