The government of Saskatchewan is sending a message of support and $60,000 to help people in Ukraine.

Deputy Premier Ken Krawetz said Tuesday the money will go to humanitarian assistance in Ukraine. Opposition and government members of the legislature also supported sending a message of condolences to people who have lost family members in the conflict in Ukraine.

"I recognize the hard work that the Ukrainian-Canadian community and the Ukrainian Canadian Congress are doing in helping Ukraine on the path to prosperity, freedom and democracy," Krawetz said Tuesday.  "We look forward to continuing our work with Ukrainian community organizations and the federal government in order to provide long-term support to the people of Ukraine."
