CANADA: restricted entry for the “key government figures”

Date: January 28, 2014
Description: Canada restricted entry to the country for the “key government figures” after first armed clashes between riot police and protesters at Hrushevskogo street in Kyiv. From the statement: “Recent actions by members of Ukraine’s ruling elite in the face of popular and growing protests have been utterly deplorable, and compel us to take targeted and meaningful action.
“Given the violent repression of legitimate protest and the intimidation of opposition voices, we will be restricting entry to Canada – effective immediately – for key government figures as a direct result of their actions in recent days.
