Canada sanctions 15 Russians over Ukraine

The Canadian Foreign Affairs Ministry announced on Tuesday it is introducing sanctions against 15 more individuals for allegedly helping Russian President Vladimir Putin to attack Ukraine.

"Canada will not relent in its support of Ukraine and its people. President Putin made the choice to (further) his illegal and unjustifiable invasion, and he can also make the choice to end it by immediately ending the senseless violence and withdrawing his forces," Canada's Foreign Minister Melanie Joly stated in a press release. "Canada will not hesitate to take further action should the Russian leadership fail to change course," she added.

Among those sanctioned are mostly Russian military officials.
