Canada extends Russia sanctions

Canada has added 2 people and 10 entities to its sanctions against Russia, imposed in response Russia’s actions in Ukraine by the Special Economic Measures (Russia) Regulations. The sanctions impose an asset freeze on Russian people and entities said to be responsible for Russia’s actions in Ukraine, and prohibit business with them. The press release says the additions were made “in order to maintain the efficacy of existing sanctions until Russia fully complies with its international obligations with respect to Ukraine… to underscore continued transatlantic unity… to maintain pressure on Russia to fully implement its Minsk commitments”. Details of the 2 people and 10 entities added are here.

Canada has also added 3 Ukrainian people and 4 entities to its sanctions (see here) which list Ukrainians involved in Russia’s actions in Ukraine, pursuant to the Special Economic Measures (Ukraine) Regulations.
