Canada imposes additional economic measures on Russian energy sector.

The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today announced new sanctions under the Special Economic Measures (Russia) Regulations in response to Russia’s unprovoked and unjustifiable invasion of Ukraine.

These new measures impose restrictions on 10 key individuals from 2 important companies in Russia’s energy sector, Rosneft and Gazprom. These measures are intended to put further pressure on Russia’s leadership to cease its violations of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

The sanctions are expected to be in effect in the coming days through orders made.
