MOSCOW, June 27 (Itar-Tass) — Russia does not rule out an asymmetrical response to the approval of the Magnitsky law, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Wednesday.
The enactment of the Magnitsky law will be very negative for the relations between Russia and the United States. “The response will be not only symmetrical, this is not our choice. An asymmetrical response is also possible. A symmetrical response will follow, but another set of some other measures will be taken as well,” Ryabkov underlined.
The deputy foreign minister noted that it is early to speak about them.
“We do not just regret deeply, but are indignant that despite the common sense and all those signals that Moscow gave and gives about these counterproductive steps, the work on the Magnitsky law continues,” the high-ranking diplomat noted.
Russia “hopes that the common sense will triumph.” “At the current stage it is hard to judge about further procedure for this act (the Magnitsky law) to pass in the US legislation. But still there are some opportunities to think over the consequences, and we urge US partners and lawmakers to this,” Ryabkov underlined.
