OTTAWA, March 10 (Reuters) - Canada on Friday banned the import of all Russian aluminum and steel products in a move that Ottawa said was aimed at denying Moscow the ability to fund its war against Ukraine.

The ban covers both finished and unfinished products, and would impact the import of products such as aluminum sheets, aluminum containers as well steel tubes and pipes, according to the statement.

Canada, along with its Western allies, has taken coordinated actions against Russia over its invasion in Ukraine.

"We are ensuring Putin cannot pay for his war by selling aluminum and steel in Canada, in coordination with action taken by the United States today," Freeland said.

Last month, the United States announced a 200% tariff on Russian aluminum and related products that came into effect on Friday.

Russian aluminum is produced by Rusal (RUAL.MM), which accounts for about 6% of global supplies.

Canada imported C$45 million of aluminum and C$213 million of steel products from Russia In 2021, according to official data. »
