How is Ukraine using artillery sent by Canada, and other allies on the front lines?

Global News on Youtube shows that this week, Global News was escorted to a secret location near the front lines in Kharkiv to observe long-range artillery sent by allies, including Canada, to help Ukraine push back Russia’s assault. 

Canada sent a number of M777 howitzers to Ukraine in April as part of a $130-million support package. It has since sent millions more in replacement barrels and ammunition, among other lethal aid. 

Long-range artillery such as M777s have become crucial in attempts to turn the tide of the war, allowing Ukrainians to target Russian troops and locations from farther away and in turn prevent further strikes on Ukrainian forces. 

Crystal Goomansingh met with troops using these heavy weapons.
