Department notes that since the fraudulent presidential elections in August 2020, the Government of Belarus has conducted a systematic campaign of repression and state-sponsored violence against public protests and the activities of opposition groups.

"Despite international calls for Aleksandr Lukashenko to end the violence in Belarus, his regime’s aggression continues. Those responsible for repressing the people of Belarus will face increasing pressure through targeted sanctions. Canada will continue to stand in steadfast support of the Belarusian people as they struggle for peace," Minister of Foreign Affairs François-Philippe Champagne stated.

Sanctions were imposed against 13 government officials of Belarus. It is noted that the inclusion in the list of sanctions  leads to the freezing of assets of those people in the territory of Canada, as well as a prohibition for citizens and companies of Canada to conclude transactions with these persons or provide them with financial or related services. The persons involved in the "black list" are also prohibited from entering Canada.

As we reported earlier, the European Union has officially imposed sanctions against Alexander Lukashenko and dozens of Belarusian officials for violent repression, including arbitrary arrests and ill-treatment of peaceful protesters.
