The Ukrainian government hopes that Canada will extend restrictive measures against Russian individuals involved in the aggression in Donbas, violations of human rights in Crimea and Russia. Ukrainian ambassador in Canada Andriy Shevchenko said that in his commentary for Ukrinform.

‘According to the Magnitsky Act, the first 30 Russian citizens already faced personal sanctions as those involved in human rights violations. We hope we will be able to apply this Act against the Russians persecuting Ukrainians in Crimea’.

Having approved this act, Canada showed the world a very dignified example of consistent pressure on Russia.
