Canada takes aim at Russia arms, financial and energy sectors

A piece of the wreckage of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 is pictured in a field near the village of Grabove, in the region of Donetsk on July 20, 2014Canada revealed on Thursday details of previously announced sanctions targeting Russia’s arms, financial and energy sectors, over the downing of Flight MH17. “The measures we are announcing today include sanctions against a broad range of entities from Russia’s arms industry, as well as from its financial and energy sectors,” Prime Minister Stephen Harper said in a statement. Armed Ukrainian separatist groups — The Donetsk People’s Republic and The Luhansk People’s Republic — as well as their leaders were also targeted by the latest round of sanctions. “These groups, with direct support from Russia, have engaged in egregious acts against the armed forces of Ukraine, international monitors deployed to the area, and the civilian population,” Harper said.
