MOSCOW, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Foreign Ministry has drawn up a list of U.S. citizens, who have been involved in encroachments on human rights and who will be denied an opportunity to enter the Russian territory, Dr Alexei Pushkov, the chairman of the State Duma’s foreign policy committee said Friday.
“It’s true that the Foreign Ministry has a confidential list /of U.S. citizens/, the same way that the U.S. Department of State has a similar list /of Russian citizens/,” he told the Russian News Service radio.
The list contains the names of Americans who, according to the information available to the Russian side, have been involved in human rights abuses and “who will not be admitted to the Russian territory.”
U.S. Senate on Thursday adopted a bill on normalization of trade relations with Russia, which encorporates the so-called Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act envisioning sanctions against the judges, lawyers, and law enforcement officers reportedly involved in the controversial situation around the lawyer of Hermitage Capital Management lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, who died in a Moscow pretrial investigations center in November 2009.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said earlier Moscow will retaliate with the banning of entry visas for the Americans whose involvement in the encroachments on human rights has been proved.
