Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Monday new sanctions on 74 people and institutions in Russia and Belarus, as G7 leaders are meeting in Germany to discuss the threat posed by Russia’s attack on Ukraine to global stability.
According to a statement from the Canadian Prime Minister’s Office, the sanctions include 46 entities linked to the Russian defense sector, and 15 Ukrainians who support the Russian attack.
The Canadian government also imposed sanctions on 13 people related to the Russian government and defense and two entities in Belarus.
Trudeau says Canada also plans to impose sanctions on those related to disinformation, and what he described as “state-sponsored propaganda agents”, in an effort to counter disinformation of the Kremlin.
Canada also banned the export of advanced technologies that would improve Russia’s domestic defense manufacturing capabilities.
It banned the export of advanced technologies and goods that could be used in weapons manufacturing in Belarus, as well as the import and export of luxury goods between Canada and Belarus.
Trudeau also announced that Canada, along with the United States, the United Kingdom and Japan, will ban the import of certain gold goods from Russia.
