Canada slaps sanctions on 33 Russian defense firms

The Government of Canada has announced new sanctions targeting Russia’s defense sector under the Special Economic Measures (Russia) Regulations in connection with the Russian “illegal and unjustifiable invasion of Ukraine.”

That's according to the Canadian Foreign Ministry

The new sanctions include asset freezes and bans on 33 Russian defense companies that directly or indirectly support Russian troops, and thus "are complicit in the pain and suffering stemming from Vladimir Putin’s senseless war in Ukraine."

"Today’s measures are the latest example of our unwavering support for Ukraine and its people. We will continue to support the brave men and women fighting for their freedom, and we demand that those responsible for atrocities be held accountable," said Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Joly.

The Canadian Foreign Ministry added that it would explore, in coordination with its international partners, “options for new measures to respond to the Russian regime’s unjustifiable acts."

Since the onset of Russian invasion of Ukraine, Canada has imposed sanctions on more than 700 individuals and entities from Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine. All property and assets of designated persons in Canada have been frozen, while these persons were barred from entering the country.
