MOSCOW, June 17 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia will retaliate the possible endorsement of ‘the Sergei Magnitsky bill’ by the U.S. Congress, Presidential Aide for International Affairs Yuri Ushakov said on Sunday.
“Many people in the U.S. realize that the endorsement of this bill will harm relations with Russia. A lot of countries, maybe even the overwhelming majority, bar unwelcome elements from visiting them. That is done non-publicly as an absolutely normal international practice. Yet this case is a demonstrative anti-Russian step of the Congress. They are trying to give broad interpretation to the bill, so that it may be used whenever the Americans are dissatisfied with particular Russian steps on the international scene,” Ushakov said.
“Obviously, we will retaliate. Our measures are not made public so far. We would like to avoid these measures: if there is no bill there will be no measures and the atmosphere of bilateral relations will improve immediately,” he said.
