MOSCOW, June 30. /TASS/. Canada’s move to expand sanctions against Moscow with the goal of securing the support of the Ukrainian diaspora has put an end to the prospects of the country’s aircraft industry, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin has said.
"[Canada’s PM Stephen Harper] in the pursuit of the votes of Canadians of Ukrainian descent has killed the prospects of its own aircraft industry that has been dreaming of a deal with Russia," Rogozin wrote in his Twitter microblog.
Canada introduced additional economic sanctions against 14 Russian legal entities and three Russian individuals, according to a statement issued by Harper on Monday. Ottawa also imposed a ban on import and export of goods from the territory of Crimea.
Russian companies Gazprom, Gazprom Neft, Surgutneftegaz and Transneft have been included into the extended sanction list of Canada, the country’s foreign ministry said.
Sanctions have been also imposed against Russia’s Oboronprom, Chemcomposite, Stankoinstrument, Vysokotochnye Kompleksy, United Aircraft Corporation, Tula Arms Plant, and Sirius. Sanctions will affect Marshall Capital Fund, Eurasian Youth Union, and Night Wolves Motorcycle Club.
