Canada imposes sanctions against Ukraine's top officials

Canada's Prime Minister Stephen Harper announces travel bans for top officials involved in violence against protesters in Kyiv and considers economic sanctions against Yanukovych and his supporters

"Canada continues to be outraged by the ongoing violence in Ukraine" the statement posted on the official site of Canada's PM Stephen Harper says. "Our Government has responded by introducing a travel ban on the regime’s senior leaders and announcing medical aid to assist the protestors in their time of need. Today, our Government is taking additional action to increase pressure on the regime to end the violence."

"We are imposing an expanded travel ban which will prevent senior members of the Ukrainian Government and other individuals, who bear political responsibility for the violence, from travelling to Canada," the statement adds. "This expands the scope of travel restrictions announced on January 28th. We will also be imposing economic sanctions on the Yanukovych regime and its supporters."
