The Russian Foreign Ministry says it has imposed sanctions against 100 more Canadian nationals — including Hollywood star Jim Carrey and acclaimed writer Margaret Atwood — in response to sanctions imposed on Russian citizens by Canada’s “Russophobic government.” The newly added Canadian citizens on the sanctions list include current and former Canadian officials, representatives of educational institutions, and entertainment figures Carrey, Atwood, writer and filmmaker David Bezmozgis, and actress Kathryne Winnick. There are now 1,005 Canadian citizens and companies on Russia’s sanction list.
