MOSCOW, November 17 (Itar-Tass) — The adoption of the "Magnitsky act" by the lower house of the U.S. Congress is another attempt of the grossest politicization of human rights issues, the Russian Foreign Ministry's commissioner for human rights, democracy and the rule of law Konstantin Dolgov told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
It will not take Moscow long to respond, he said.
Russia repeatedly stressed that the "Magnitsky law" is contrary to common sense and the logics of the development, generally positive in recent time, of Russian-American relations, which must be freed of such "cold war" relics, he noted.
An adequate and international law-based response of Russia to the openly unfriendly and provocative action of American legislators will not be long waited for, Dolgov said.
