Canadian Sanctions Against Putin’s Propagandists

Canada imposed sanctions against 34 artists and media outlets of the Russian Federation for "serious violation of international peace"

The press service of the government of Canada informed about the decision of the government officials to impose economic sanctions on Russian public figures. The new sanctions were due to Russian propaganda, which violates international peace and security and leads the world to a severe international crisis.

In total, the list included 34 Russian citizens. In the middle of the TV presenter Tina Kandelaki, actors Sergey Bezrukov, Dmitry Pieskov, and Vladimir Mashkov, TV presenter and journalist Nali Vagif Kizi Asker-Zadeh, assistant president of Russia Vladimir Medynskyi, "military correspondent" Oleksandr Kots. Also, one of the propaganda channels belonging to the Ministry of defence of Russia was included in the list of sanctions — Zvezda (Star in English — ed.).

"These persons help the Russian regime to undermine the principles of state sovereignty and are responsible for spreading false meetings, which are the reason for the unjustified war of the Russian regime," the Ministry of foreign affairs of Canada reported.

All these people are considered Russian propaganda, officials, and cultural figures who support Russian aggression against Ukraine. Some have repeatedly expressed in their social networks for "punishment" for Ukrainians.
