OTTAWA, September 18. /ITAR-TASS/. The Canadian government decided to remove from its black list two Russian credit institutions — Expobank and Rosenergobank.

Second Secretary of Russia’s embassy to Canada Kirill Kalinin said this to an ITAR-TASS correspondent on Thursday.

“Indeedm the bill on special economic measures against Russia has been amended, and Rosenergobank and Expobank have been removed from the sanctions list,” he specified.

Meanwhile, Canada’s Foreign Ministry hasn’t made any statements in this regard, and there is no separate message on this topic on its official website. The fact about the removal of two Russian banks from the sanctions list can be found in an appendix completing the main document about imposing new economic measures on Russia dated September 16, 2014. ITAR-TASS asked the Canadian Foreign Ministry for some comments on the decision, but to no avail so far.

Canada’s sanctions against Russia

As ITAR-TASS reported earlier, Rosenergobank and Expobank were included in the Canadian sanctions list April 28. The list was further expanded September 16 with Sberbank, the Mytishchy Engineering Plant, the Engineering Plant named after M.I. Kalinin, the Institute for Scientific Research of tool engineering named after V.V. Tikhomirov, the Dolgoprudnyi Research and Development Enterprise, the Marine Research and Development Institute of Radio Electronics “Altair”. In addition, several individuals were added to the list, thus banned from entering Canada and having their assets, if any, frozen.
