The United States, together with the European Union and Canada, imposed new sanctions on March 15 on more than a dozen Russian officials and businesses in response to the country's "continued aggression in Ukraine".

Global Affairs Canada says the list of people and entities sanctioned over Russia's aggression toward Ukraine has now reached 429. "These new listings have been adopted by the Council as a response to escalation in the Kerch Strait and the Sea of Azov and the violations of worldwide law by Russian Federation, which used military force with no justification", the statement says.

The United States, the European Union (EU) and Canada imposed new sanctions on Russian Federation over its continued aggression against Ukraine.

"This joint initiative with our partners in the European Union and Canada reinforces our shared commitment to impose targeted and meaningful sanctions in response to the Kremlin's attempts to disregard global norms and undermine Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity", he added.

The EU's decision takes the number of people blacklisted by the bloc over the crisis in Ukraine to 170, plus 44 entities.

Twenty-four Ukrainian crew members were detained in the naval incident.
