OTTAWA, March 07, 23:56 /ITAR-TASS/. Canada has introduced restrictions on the issuance of travel visas to a number of Russian citizens in connection with the events in Ukraine and Moscow’s moral support for Russian-speaking population in the eastern regions of Ukraine and Crimea.
“Today, our Government is taking additional measures to further increase pressure on President Putin and the Russian Federation to withdraw its troops to their bases by imposing a travel ban against a number of individuals responsible for threatening the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine,” Prime Minister Stephen Harper said in a statement Friday.
He said Canada remained highly alarmed by the ongoing crisis and it was calling on Russia to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of turmoil-stricken Ukraine.
Last Saturday, Harper said Canada was suspending preparations for the G8 summit in Sochi and revoking its ambassador in Moscow for consultations
New steps were taken by Ottawa three days later when it suspended all the bilateral contacts between the Canadian and Russian Armed Forces. March 5, Harper suspended work in the bilateral intergovernmental commission set up to develop economics relations between the two countries.
