Ukrainian diaspora calls on Canada to strengthen sanctions against Russia

Russia continues to violate international law and deserves strengthening of the Canadian sanctions.

President of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress Pavlo Grod expressed such opinion, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Russia continues to demonstrate its disdain for international law and internationally recognized human rights standards. It is important that the Canadian government promptly impose sanctions on Russian individuals and legal entities responsible for violating international law and the rights of citizens of Ukraine and Russia," Grod said.

He also welcomed the unanimous adoption of the Justice for Victims of Corrupt Foreign Officials Act (Sergei Magnitsky Law) by Canada’s House of Commons on October 4, which allows imposing sanctions on violators of human rights and corrupt officials around the world.
