State Duma deputy from Crimea Andrey Kozenko said that Canada is overestimating its influence on the economy by imposing sanctions against the operator of rail passenger transportation to the republic and other companies.
On the eve, the Canadian authorities introduced new restrictive measures due to the reunification of Crimea with Russia. The sanctions affected two individuals and four legal entities, including the head of the Grand Service Express transport company.
Moreover, last week Ottawa imposed sanctions against nine high-ranking Russian officials.
As Kozenko noted, Canada is too far from Russia, so the “scale” of such restrictions becomes immediately clear.
The deputy is sure that the sanctions imposed by this country will not have even a minimal economic effect, reports TASS.
