Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Joly announced new sanctions against 10 individuals and 153 legal entities. All of these individuals are associated with the crimes of the Russian Federation.

According to an official statement on the ministry's website, Canada is announcing these sanctions in coordination with the United Kingdom and the United States. These sanctions focus on areas that affect the Russian government's ability to continue its illegal and unjustified invasion of Ukraine.

"These sanctions target individuals and entities that support the Russian military through finance, logistics and sanctions evasion. Among the listed individuals are an aide to President Putin, as well as senior officials of private and state-owned companies registered in Russia and Cyprus. These individuals and the companies they lead are nodes of direct and indirect support for the Russian government's war of aggression against Ukraine. Most of the sanctioned entities are part of the Russian military-industrial complex, providing the Russian Ministry of Defense with research and development, manufacturing, repair, and other goods and services," the statement said.

Canada also announces a ban on exports of certain goods that could be used to manufacture weapons and support the war against Ukraine to Russia. The ban applies to explosives, including detonators used in the mining and construction industries. The export ban also includes an additional 20 controlled items known to be used by Russia for the production and manufacture of weapons.

The export ban applies to all explosives, including detonators, as well as designated items on a list developed jointly with Canada's international partners. They pose a heightened risk of being used by the Russian government to strengthen its military-industrial complex.

Since 2014, Canada has imposed sanctions on more than 2,900 individuals and entities in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova who are complicit in the violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as gross and systematic human rights abuses. Many of these sanctions were imposed in coordination with Canada's allies and partners.

Since January 2022, Canada has allocated more than $9.7 billion in financial, military, humanitarian, development, and immigration assistance to Ukraine.
