PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will announce a package of new sanctions against Russia and more aid for Ukraine during the G20 meetings in Bali, Indonesia, according to sources familiar with the package.

On Sunday, the prime minister said the Canadian delegation would continue to criticize the Russian government over its invasion of Ukraine.

“I strongly suspect that the Russian representative is not going to like what he’s going to hear from a lot of us at the G20,” Trudeau told reporters.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is not attending the summit, but Putin has sent his foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, in his place.

Foreign Minister Melanie Joly said on Saturday she would not meet Lavrov if invited to do so at the G20 meetings, saying it would legitimize Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.
