Poklonskaya called canadian sanctions against Crimean deputies late

Поклонская назвала канадские санкции против крымских депутатов запоздавшими

The Deputy of the state Duma from “United Russia” Natalia Poklonskaya finds that Canada is late with the introduction of its sanctions against Duma deputies from the Crimea.

Earlier, Canada imposed sanctions against 15 people, including six deputies of the state Duma of the Russian Federation from Crimea.

“Absolutely futile some quite belated sanctions, probably the test was carried out by the countries who have not imposed sanctions, and got Canada. Here are remembered and imposed sanctions,” said Poklonskaya RIA Novosti.

According to the MP, Canada was delayed because the sanctions were imposed in response to elections held on 18 September in the state Duma, “and now it’s December on the nose, something they thought long, how to keep the sovereignty of Ukraine.”

She also noted that sanctions are counterproductive for Canada, and for the Russian Federation no significance.
