These measures are designed to put additional pressure on the Russian leadership to stop violations of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, the report says.

Canada is taking these actions with its international partners and allies in solidarity with the government and people of Ukraine. Consultations will continue with partners on the imposition of further sanctions if Russia continues its aggression against Ukraine.

The sanctions are expected to take effect in the coming days.

“Canada stands unwaveringly behind Ukraine and its people. For every act of aggression by the Russian leadership, we will continue to respond with measures designed to weaken its ability to wage war. As the horrific events in Ukraine continue to unfold before our eyes, it becomes clear that more needs to be done. Those who help and incite Russian aggression will be held accountable. Canada supports Ukraine," Melanie Joly said.

The European Union announced that it would disconnect seven Russian banks from the SWIFT system on March 12.
