Canada has said it is imposing additional sanctions on Russian oligarchs and banning the export and import of targeted luxury goods to and from Russia.

The new measures will put restrictions on 14 individuals including Russian oligarchs, their family members, and close associates of Russian President Vladimir Putin, it said in an official statement.

"These individuals have directly enabled Vladimir Putin’s senseless war in Ukraine and bear responsibility for the pain and suffering of the people of Ukraine," it said.

The import ban will target Russian goods including alcoholic beverages, seafood, fish and non-industrial diamonds, while the export ban will target luxury goods such as footwear, luxury clothing and jewellery.
