Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced sanctions against 10 more Russian political and business leaders.
At a news conference in London, he took a clear jab at President Vladimir Putin, pointing out the 10 were identified by Alexei Navalny, the jailed Russian opposition leader who is considered Putin's main rival.
Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte also acknowledged the need to increase defence spending in response to both Russia's actions and growing instability around the world.
Trudeau wouldn't say if that would extend to Canada meeting NATO's target for member countries to spend two per cent of their GDP on defence.
