“In the wake of continued aggression by Russia, which includes the
ongoing supply of logistical support and weapons systems to agents of
the Putin regime in eastern Ukraine, Canada is announcing its intent to
once again increase economic and political pressure, in the coming days,
by imposing additional sanctions on the regime and those closest to
it,” reads a statement of the Canadian prime minister.

“In doing so, we are moving in close coordination with our partners in the United States and Europe,” he added.

“President Putin’s failure to end his support to armed rebel groups
constitutes a very real threat to international peace and security. His
actions represent an overt, direct threat to the Ukrainian people and
its rightfully elected government,” he said.
