Canada and its G7 partners are banning the direct import of Russian diamonds, Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly announced, Report informs via Global News.

The ban, which includes diamonds and diamond jewelry-related products, comes after G7 leaders announced a commitment in May to reduce the revenues that Russia extracts from the export of non-industrial diamonds mined, processed or produced in the country.

Reducing Russia’s revenue from the diamond industry ensures that proceeds from the export of Russian diamonds will “not contribute to financing conflict,” a press release announcing the move said.
