MOSCOW, October 22 (Itar-Tass) — Authorities approved a list of US citizens whose stay in the Russian Federation is found undesirable, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.
“Guided by the principle of mutual relations, authorities approved a list of US citizens whose stay in the Russian Federation was recognised as undesirable,” the ministry said. “It includes ranking Washington officials, implicated in resounding crimes in humanitarian sphere, such as legalisation of tortures at American special prisons, abduction and humiliation of terror suspects, unlimited internment of detainees in Guantanamo, uninvestigated murders of civil population in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
"The campaign, continued in the US around the death of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, including a decision by the State Department to impose visa sanctions on some Russian officials and lists of Russians who are banned from the US, provokes a serious concert,” the ministry emphasised.
“Sure, we shall not leave unanswered the political provocation, engineered against our country.”
