Canada to ban sanctioned Russians from entering country

The Canadian government decided on Tuesday to ban Russians sanctioned over Moscow's invasion of Ukraine from entering Canada.

Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino announced the changes, which will "allow the Canada Border Services Agency to deny entry to, and remove, individuals subject to sanctions, and will allow (immigration) officials to deny visas."

Since the start of the Ukrainian conflict in late February, Canada and its western allies jointly sanctioned more than 1,000 people from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.
