Canada imposes additional sanctions against Belarus for supporting the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Restrictions will be imposed on 22 Belarusian officials and 16 companies.

Reuters writes about it.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Canada, companies involved in military production, technology, engineering, as well as banking and railway transport will fall under the sanctions.

Also among the people subject to sanctions will be those involved in the placement and transportation of Russian military personnel and equipment.

In total, Canada said it had imposed sanctions against more than 1 500 people and companies because of the war in Ukraine.

  • At the G20 summit in Indonesia, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the provision of $500 million in military aid to Ukraine. In addition, Canada will impose new sanctions against the Russians. Canadaʼs new sanctions will affect 23 employees of the Russian justice and security sector — police officers and investigators, prosecutors, judges and employees of penitentiary institutions involved in gross and systematic violations of human rights, including the Russian opposition.
  • On October 28, Canada once again expanded sanctions against Russia. Another 35 individuals and six legal entities from Russia were on the list of restrictions, in particular, Lukoil and the management of Gazprom.
