Canada imposing more sanctions on Russia

According to the website of the Canadian Foreign Ministry, Canada’s government has imposed additional sanctions against Russia’s chemical and oil industries.
Canada amended further the Special Economic Measures (Russia) Regulations to prohibit the provision of 2 manufacturing services to the Russian oil, gas, chemical and manufacturing industries.
The document states that a variety of services can’t be provided to the Russian side by Canadian residents or businesses., including services incidental to manufacturing of fabricated metal products; motor vehicles, trailers and semi-trailers; computer, electronic and optical products; electrical equipment and other sectors.
Minister Counselor at the Russian Embassy in Canada Vladimir Proskuryakov told TASS the sanctions were counter-productive and would entail negative effects for Canada as well.
“We believe that a yet another round of sanctions is totally groundless and counter-productive. As we have repeatedly warned, all economic sanctions are a double-edged sword and will certainly boomerang on Canada,” the diplomat said.
