Federal government imposes new sanctions on Russian propaganda agents

Canada will penalise Russian propaganda operatives again for Russia's invasion and attempted takeover of Ukraine.

During the visit to Ottawa on Monday of human rights and media, freedom advocates Bill Browder and Evgenia Kara-Mourza, wife of the Leader of the Opposition, Mélanie Joly, Minister of Foreign Affairs, made the announcement. According to the communication, the Russian captive Vladimir Kara-Murza is still being held.

Sanctions have been imposed against 34 individuals and one entity who are suspected of being complicit in the dissemination of Russian propaganda and disinformation, contributing to the undermining of Ukrainian sovereignty, and being responsible for false intelligence that was used as a pretext for war.

“The war being waged by the Russian regime is founded on falsehoods and deception. Those of its own residents who have the audacity to voice the truth risk being silenced or imprisoned. The number of violations of human rights committed by Russia continues to climb, and as a result, Canada is taking action to combat the propaganda that attempts to justify these violations. We are not naive in any way. “Canada is proud to stand in solidarity with Ukraine,” stated Mélanie Joly, Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs.
