Canada, together with partners, will extend sanctions against 1,750 people, organizations in Russia and Belarus. And will announce new sanctions to 62 more individuals, as well as one defense sector enterprise that is involved in the Russian war against Ukraine.
This was stated by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the Crimean Platform Summit.
According to him, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is waging an extremely aggressive war against Ukraine and civilians.
"We cannot forget that Putin's invasion began in 2014. The Ukrainian people have the right to defend themselves and defend their Crimea. We are committed to supporting you," Trudeau said.
The Prime Minister of Canada said that the world and Ukrainians should not get used to a full-scale war and this horror. He assured that Canada would continue to support Ukraine.
The media write that in this way, by the end of the year, all the heads of the regions of the Russian Federation will fall under the sanctions, and then the turn will come of the second and third echelon of officials.
In addition, Canada and Germany have agreed on a new package of military assistance to Ukraine, which includes air defense systems, missile systems and ammunition.
