Canada’s National Defence Committee urges to increase sanctions against Russia

Canada should respond to the latest escalation of Russian aggression against Ukraine by expanding sanctions against the Russian Federation.

This is stated in a report of the Standing Committee on National Defence of the Parliament of Canada entitled “Responding to Russian aggression against Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia in the Black Sea region”.

“The Committee recommends that the Government of Canada consider sanctions against Russia in the financial and energy sectors in response to its escalation of hostilities against Ukraine,” the document reads.

The Committee also recommends that the Government of Canada increase sanctions under the Justice for Victims of Corrupt Foreign Officials Act (Sergei Magnitsky Law) against those connected to the ongoing aggression against Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia, and that it specifically list the Russian agents involved in the attacks against Alexander Litvinenko and Sergei Skripal.
