There are 14 Russians on Canada’s sanctions list, including two daughters of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Canadian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced Tuesday (19/4) the local time.
Earlier this month, the United States and Britain also announced sanctions against Putin’s daughters, Katerina Vladimirovna Tikhonova and Maria Vladimirovna Vorontsova, who are hiding Putin’s wealth. Sanctions include confiscation of assets and travel bans.
Russia attacked its neighbors in late February over Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreement, first signed in 2014.
