The trap on Vladimir Putin is tight, but Russia has banned it from airspace around the world on Sunday, and an official at its delegation to the UN General Assembly apologized for the attack in Ukraine.
Federal Transport Minister Omar Algabra has announced that Russian-owned, chartered or operated aircraft will no longer fly over Canada and will take effect immediately.
The European Union (EU) has taken similar action in its twenty-seven member states. The United Kingdom and Norway have also decided to close their airspace to the Russians.
In the United States, the measure is under consideration, Reuters reported. American citizens in Russia were urged by their homeland to consider leaving the country immediately.
The inconvenience surrounding the Russian invasion was also felt at an important UN climate conference behind the closed doors of 195 countries via videoconference on Sunday.
“Allow me to apologize on behalf of all Russians for failing to prevent this conflict,” Oleg Anisimov, head of the Russian delegation, began with surprising intervention, according to three sources trusted at the AFP.
The nations of the world, on the other hand, continue to act harshly on Russia.
To prevent Moscow from financing the conflict in Ukraine, European foreign ministers agreed to block transactions through the Russian Central Bank, which could cripple more than half of its reserves held in banks in the G7 countries.
$ 25 million in aid
Canada has announced $ 25 million in non-lethal military equipment, including body armor, combat helmets and night vision goggles, in addition to providing defense assistance against cybersecurity threats.
That being said, sending troops to Ukraine is still unpredictable.
