Trudeau announces Canada ban on Russian oil imports

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announces a ban on Russian oil imports, saying oil revenues have helped to prop up Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russian oligarchs.

“Today, we are announcing a ban on all imports of crude oil from Russia, an industry that has benefited President Putin and his oligarchs greatly,” Trudeau tells a news conference.

“And while Canada has imported very little amounts in recent years, this measure sends a powerful message,” he adds.
