MOSCOW, April 25 (Itar-Tass) – Russian President Vladimir Putin believes the adoption of the "Magnitsky Act" is a manifestation of the U.S. imperial behaviour on the foreign policy field.

"What need was to do it? Nobody can explain. Nobody can say why," Putin said during the televised question-and-answer session on Thursday

Russia did not provoke in any way to worsen relations with the United States, he noted.

The Russian president believes relations between the two countries could develop positively in case the American partners just repealed the Jackson-Vanik amendment. "No, there was a need to pull another anti-Russian act – the Magnitsky Act in this case," Putin said.

In his view, it was done just to "fan the gills" – to show they are the most powerful here. "It is such imperial behavious on the foreign policy field. But who will like it?" Putin noted.
