Canada to impose sanctions against Belarusian firms and officials

Nov 22, 2022

Canada said Tuesday that it will impose additional sanctions on representatives of the regime of self-proclaimed Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko for supporting Russia's war in Ukraine.

This was reported by Reuters.

The Foreign Ministry in Ottawa said it would impose sanctions on 22 more Belarusian officials, as well as 16 Belarusian companies involved in military production, technology, engineering, banking, and rail transportation.


The ministry said those officials include those involved in the deployment and transportation of Russian military personnel and equipment involved in the invasion of Ukraine.

Canada is one of several countries that have imposed tough financial sanctions on Russia for its February 24 invasion of Ukraine and subsequent war for which it used Belarus as a springboard.
