OTTAWA — Canada on Tuesday said it was imposing targeted sanctions on 14 individuals in the Russian regime, including on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s two adult daughters, according to a statement from the foreign ministry.

Earlier this month, the United States and Britain both announced sanctions against Putin’s daughters – Katerina Vladimirovna Tikhonova and Maria Vladimirovna Vorontsova – because they said they are believed to be hiding the Putin’s wealth.

Putin’s daughter Katerina is a tech executive whose work supports the Russian government and its defence industry, according to details in the U.S. sanctions package announced earlier this month.

His other daughter Maria leads government-funded programs that have received billions of dollars from the Kremlin toward genetics research, and are personally overseen by Putin, the United States said.
