Canada sanctions Putin and Lavrov for ‘barbaric war’


Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has just announced the country will join the US, UK and EU in levying sanctions against Russian President Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

Speaking at a news conference in Ottawa’s Parliament Hill, he said that Putin’s “own personal wealth… is at significant risk because of his terrible mistake”.

“We will be imposing sanctions on President Putin and his fellow architects of this barbaric war,” he said, adding that sanctions will also be placed on the leaders of Belarus due to their support for Russia’s invasion.
