The Canadian authorities have announced a ban on the export to the Russian Federation of a number of goods that can be used for military purposes.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada, Melanie Joly, announced the introduction of new sanctions against Russia, timed to the second anniversary of the full-scale invasion of Russian troops into Ukraine, the press service of the Canadian Ministry of Foreign Affairs reports.

“We will continue to take measures against the Russian government and its ability to wage an illegal war until Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are fully restored,” Zholy said.

In total, sanctions were imposed against 153 companies and ten people, including the assistant to the President of the Russian Federation Igor Levitin, the president of the Russian Chess Federation Andrei Filatov, the head of Voentorg Vladimir Pavlov and the co-owner of Transmashholding Andrei Bokarev.

In addition, the insurance companies “AlfaStrakhovanie” and “RESO-Garantia”, the bank “Saint Petersburg”, the aviation complex named after Ilyushin, the concern “Almaz-Antey” and other companies connected with the Russian military-industrial complex came under the sanctions of Canada.

“Most of the entities subject to sanctions provide goods and services, such as components for Kalibr missiles and drones, insurance and retail services to the Ministry of Defense of Russia,” the Canadian Ministry of Foreign Affairs clarifies.

Also, the Canadian authorities announced a ban on the export of a number of goods to the Russian Federation that may be used for military purposes. In particular, explosives and detonators used in the mining and construction industries have been banned.
