United States imposes new Ukraine-related sanctions on Russian Federation

Global Affairs Canada says the list of people and entities sanctioned over Russia's aggression toward Ukraine has now reached 429.

The U.S. sanctions freeze all property and interests in property belonging to the designated individuals and entities, and prohibit U.S. persons from transacting with them.

We, with our global partners, stand with Ukraine in opposing Russia's ongoing efforts to undermine Ukrainian security, sovereignty and territorial integrity.

We call upon Russian Federation to immediately return to Ukraine the seized vessels and detained crewmembers, and keep the Kerch Strait and the Sea of Azov open to ships transiting to and from Ukrainian ports.

The Russian navy captured 24 Ukrainian sailors during the clash.

The EU has attempted to take a measured approach to the current situation in regards to relations with the Kremlin, but it has, nevertheless, continues to apply pressure to Russian President Vladimir Putin and those associated with the Crimea invasion and Moscow's ongoing war in Ukraine's eastern Donbass region. Thus, the sanctions were imposed against Head of "Border Unit of Crimean and Sevastopol FSB Rear Admiral Sergey Stankevich, his deputy Andrey Shein, Commander of troops of Southern Military district Alexandr Dvornikov, commanders Alexey Salaev and Andrey Shipitsyn, participating in the seizure of the vessels, commander of anti-submarine warfare ship Suzdalets Sergey Shcherbakov and two heads of the FSB control points Ruslan Romashkin and Alexey Shatokhin".

FIFA confirms 24-team Club World Cup to start in 2021
The ECA represents 232 European clubs, including all the leading clubs who would be expected to feature in a Club World Cup. But it's not as easy as that. "I am always happy but especially today because we have taken some important decisions".

As stated by the European Council on 13 December, the EU requests the immediate release of all detained Ukrainian seamen as well as the return of the seized vessels and free passage of all ships through the Kerch Strait.

"Canada and its allies are unwavering in our support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity".

In addition, the Council of the European Union "added eight Russian officials to the list of those subject to restrictive measures in respect of actions undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine".

He added: "We call upon Russian Federation to immediately return to Ukraine the seized vessels and arrested crew members, and keep the Kerch Strait and the Sea of Azov open to ships transiting to and from Ukrainian ports".

In 2014, the USA imposed sanctions against Russian Federation for the first time following the unfolding of the Ukrainian crisis. They are still in Russian detention.

"I have spent 30 years of my life building companies that are major players in the global economy, and will not let that hard work - along with millions of jobs and individual livelihoods - be destroyed by political scheming", he said in the statement sent by his spokeswoman.
