The Russian Foreign Ministry has published a list of Canadian citizens who are denied entry to Russia.

The list included 592 Canadian citizens. Among them are senators of the Parliament of Canada, members of the House of Commons of Parliament from the Liberal and Conservative parties, publicists, Mayor of Ottawa Jim Watson, Mayor of Toronto John Tory, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada David Lametti, former Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper and others.

“We emphasize that on the Russian side, sanctions of this kind are imposed involuntarily and exclusively in response to the hostile actions of the Canadian leadership. Russia is striving for mutually respectful and good-neighbourly relations with the Canadian people, calling on the authorities in Ottawa to abandon the Russophobic course that deprives the country of independence in foreign policy and does not meet its national interests,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

Formerly Russian Foreign Ministry warnedthat “the principled line will be continued, involving a decisive rebuff to the Russophobic actions of the official Ottawa, including the supply of weapons and connivance in sending mercenaries to Ukraine.”

“In this regard, we warn the Canadian curators of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the national battalions about the responsibility for the war crimes committed by their wards. The perpetrators will definitely be punished, ”the Russian Foreign Ministry assured.

We also recall that on February 21, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed decrees recognizing the independence of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR), and on February 24 he made an urgent appeal to the Russians and announced a special military operation in Donbass. In his speech, he stated that “circumstances require decisive action from Russia” and stressed that “Russia will not allow Ukraine to have nuclear weapons.” The goals of the special operation were called “demilitarization and denazification” of Ukraine.

In response to Russia’s actions, Western countries (USA, Canada, European Union, Great Britain, Japan) announced new, tougher sanctions against the Russian Federation, including those of a financial and economic nature, as well as against officials and businessmen.
