MOSCOW, November 19 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s response to the approval of the Magnitsky Act by the US Congress should be symmetrical, First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee for International Affairs Vyacheslav Nikonov said at a round-table meeting in the State Duma on Monday.
“To my mind, our response should quite symmetrical, an amendment should be introduced for a ban on the entry in Russia and the arrest of the assets of those people, who are blamed for human rights violations,” Nikonov noted.
Meanwhile, he offered to impose the broadest regime of visa and financial sanctions. “The amendments should be broader, not only against those, who are related to the keeping of (Viktor) Bout in prison, but also those, who are directly involved in the tortures at the Guantanamo prison, committed the war crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan, committed the crimes against humanity in former Yugoslavia,” the first deputy chairman of the committee said.
