MOSCOW, September 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow will take asymmetric measures, if the European Union introduces visa sanctions against Russians allegedly involved in the Magnitsky affair, the Russian Ministry’s special envoy, Anvar Azimov, said on Thursday.

“I am not in the mood of commenting on this initiative that some European parliamentarians have put forward. In our business-like dialogue we screen ourselves from ultimatums,” he said. Azimov said that in case of visa sanctions against some Russians proportionate asymmetric measures would follow.

Russia would not like this affair to cause adverse effects on its visa cancellation dialogue with the EU.

“The Magnitsky case is being politicized out of proportion. The resolution on human rights in Russia the PACE is going to adopt would be a step in the same direction. I am against politicizing the visa regimen,” he said.
