Canada is imposing sanctions against 35 individuals and six legal entities of Russia in order to increase pressure on the regime of Vladimir Putin, who unleashed a war against Ukraine.

According to European Pravda, Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau announced this at the Congress of Ukrainians in Canada in Winnipeg.

It is noted that the sanctions are directed against 35 high-ranking energy companies, in particular Gazprom and its subsidiaries, as well as six energy sector entities involved in Russia’s ongoing violations of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.

Also, according to Trudeau, Canada intends to introduce new sanctions against representatives of the Russian justice and security agencies, in particular police and investigators, prosecutors, judges and prison workers involved in gross and systematic human rights violations against the leaders of the Russian opposition.

The Canadian sanctions list included, among other things, Russian Deputy Prime Ministers Denis Manturov and Alexander Novak, Gazprom Executive Director Vitaly Markelov and his press secretary Sergey Kupriyanov, as well as Lukoil, Transoil, National Non-Metal Company RF and SOGAZ.

Recall that on October 17, the Zvezda propaganda TV channel, owned by the Russian Ministry of Defense, Russian actors Sergei Bezrukov and Vladimir Mashkov, TV presenters Tina Kandelaki and Naila Asker-Zade, Putin’s assistant Vladimir Medinsky and others fell under Canadian sanctions.

Since the illegal occupation of Crimea by Russia in 2014, Canada has imposed sanctions against more than 1,800 individuals and entities, and since February 24, against more than 1,400 individuals and entities from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.
