Canada imposes economic sanctions on Russia over Ukraine crisis

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks during Question Period in the House of Commons on Parliament Hill after police ended three weeks of an occupation of the capital by protesters seeking to end coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccine mandates in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday announced a first round of economic sanctions on Russia a day after Moscow recognised the separatist regions of Donetsk and Luhansk as independent.

The United States, the European Union, Germany and Britain also announced ways they will hit Russia financially as they fear a further incursion is to come, a move Moscow has consistently denied for months.
