On April 27, Canada imposed sanctions against 203 representatives of the DNR and LNR. The restrictions will affect 11 high-ranking officials and 192 deputies of the people’s councils of the Lugansk and Donetsk people’s republics.
Before that, Canada imposed sanctions on 160 members of the Federation Council of Russia against the backdrop of a military special operation in Ukraine. Trudeau then also promised that Canada would continue to work with allies in order to “hold the Russian Federation to account.”
