Canada has recently expanded a range of sanctions against Russia as its actions "constitute a grave breach of international peace and security that has resulted in a serious international crisis," the Government of Canada reported on its official website.

In particular, the amendments to the Special Economic Measures (Russia) Regulations banned the provision of services to the Russian oil and gas, chemical and processing industries.

It is noted that "it is prohibited for any person in Canada and any Canadian outside Canada to provide to Russia or to any person in Russia a service" related to manufacturing of basic metals, fabricated metal products, except machinery and equipment, computer, electronic and optical products, electrical equipment, machinery and equipment not elsewhere classified, motor vehicles, trailers and semi-trailers, other transport equipment, land transport and transport via pipelines.

Following Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February, Canada imposed sanctions on more than 1,070 individuals and entities from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.

Advertising and public-relations agencies have been banned for working for Russian oil and gas firms as part of a new wave of sanctions released on June 8 designed to increase pressure on the Putin regime.

The sanctions were extended a month later. Canada's updated blacklist includes both individuals and legal entities, in particular, the propaganda Regnum news agency and the head of the Russian Orthodox Church Vladimir Gundyayev, also known as Patriarch Kirill of Moscow.
