Canada to Ban Russian Crude Oil Imports

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declared that his government plans to ban imports of Russian crude oil into the country, as part of efforts to ramp up pressure on President Vladimir Putin.

Trudeau made the statement at a press conference in Ottawa, where he likewise announced plans to provide anti-tank weapon systems to Ukraine. 

“Today, we are announcing our intention to ban all imports of crude oil from Russia, an industry that has benefited President Putin and his oligarchs greatly,” Trudeau declared, adding “While Canada has imported very little amounts in recent years, this measure sends a powerful message.”
