MOSCOW, Nov 14 Moscow imposed sanctions against 100 Canadian citizens banning them from entering Russia, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
The agency noted that the sanctions are being introduced in response to “the ongoing practice by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's regime of imposing sanctions against the Russian leadership, politicians and parliamentarians, business representatives, experts and journalists, cultural figures, as well as anyone whom the Canadian Russophobic authorities consider objectionable.”
“On the basis of reciprocity, entry is closed for 100 Canadian citizens. Among them are high-ranking officials, businessmen, activists of numerous pro-Banderist organizations, media and financial structures that are directly involved in the formation of an aggressive anti-Russian course,” the ministry said in a statement.
Russian “stop list” on a permanent basis. Among them are Caroline Xavier, head of Canada's Communications Security Authority, Peter McKay, politician, former Attorney General, member of the Cabinet of Ministers and the House of Commons of Canada, a number of leaders of Volatus Aerospace, and other Canadian citizens.
