MOSCOW, July 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Canada declares sanctions on Russia's air defense consortium Almaz-Antey under US pressure, an official said on Friday.
The consortium manufactures surface-to-air missile systems and civilian products, he said.
“We believe that the sanctions are another example of unfriendly competition,” the official said.
Earlier, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Canada had imposed sanctions against several Russian companies due to the unrest in Ukraine.
Russian arms, financial and energy companies also face further Canadian sanctions.
“The measures we are announcing today include sanctions against a broad range of entities from Russia’s arms industry, as well as from its financial and energy sectors. Our unequivocal aim is to further increase economic and political pressure on the Putin regime,” Harper said.
