Canada is following the United States in once again stepping up the pressure on Moscow over the crisis in Ukraine.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper says two Russian companies and nine individuals will face new sanctions.

Those individuals include two billionaire friends of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Harper says the new sanctions are in response to Russia's continued actions to destabilize the Ukrainian government.

And, the PM suggests more sanctions could be on the way unless Putin follows through on an April 17th agreement that was designed to ease tensions in Ukraine.

Meanwhile, the government says six CF-18 fighter jets will leave CFB Bagotville, Quebec today to assist NATO operations in eastern Europe.

Defence Minister Rob Nicholson -- who will attend a send-off for the planes at Bagotville -- says the jets will be stationed in Romania to support air policing and training missions.
