Canada imposes additional sanctions on Russia hitting its oil and gas sector

Canada has imposed a ban on the export of 28 services vital for the operation of Russia’s oil, gas, and chemical industries, according to a news release published today on the Canadian Foreign Ministry’s website.

The measures announced today are expected to apply further pressure on President Putin, reduce Russia’s ability to wage war, and send a clear message to the Russian regime: Canada will not back down in holding those responsible for the devastation in Ukraine to account. “Canada is unwavering in the belief that Ukrainians deserve to live in peace, and it implores Russian leadership to stop its senseless war,” the news release reads.

Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Mélanie Joly is quoted as stating, “The Russian invasion of Ukraine has now lasted over 100 days. In that time, Vladimir Putin and his regime have caused untold pain and suffering in Ukraine and across the world. We will continue to relentlessly pursue accountability for Vladimir Putin’s senseless war. Canada will do everything in its power to prevent Putin’s ability to fuel and finance his war machine.”
