Minister Joly announces additional ban on imports of Russian diamonds

This ban further builds on Canada’s December 2023 import restrictions on diamonds and diamond-jewellery-related products from Russia by targeting indirect imports of Russian diamonds weighing 1 carat and above. It is consistent with the commitments made in February, May and December 2023 by G7 leaders to reduce the Putin regime’s revenues from the export of non-industrial diamonds from Russia. The latest measures affirm Canada’s resolve to impose further costs on the Putin regime for its unjustifiable war of aggression against Ukraine. March 1, 2024 – Ottawa, Ontario – Global Affairs Canada Canada will continue working with its G7 and other international partners to implement comprehensive controls that ban Russian diamonds from G7 markets. This will provide Canadian consumers with additional assurance that the diamonds that they purchase are not supporting Russia’s illegal war. The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today announced that Canada, alongside G7 partners, is imposing additional import restrictions on Russian diamonds under the Special Economic Measures (Russia) Regulations.
