MOSCOW, November 19. /TASS/. Russia is worried over the US court’s refusal to reconsider the case of Russian citizen Viktor Bout, who is serving a prison term in the United States, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s commissioner for human rights, democracy and rule of law, Konstantin Dolgov, told a news conference on Thursday.
"Russia has responded with alarm to the US court’s refusal to sustain a request for revision of the Viktor bout case," he said.
Dolgov said there were sufficient reasons for such a revision.
"One of the reasons is that he (Viktor Bout) has been removed from the UN sanction list. In the meantime, the presence of his name on that list was perceived by the jurors as the main reason for pronouncing the guilty verdict," Dolgov said.
The Russian side continues to record the cases of illegal actions by the United States against Russian citizens, Dolgov noted.
According to him, the Russian Foreign Ministry "pushes ahead with its efforts to protect the legitimate rights and interests of Russian citizens abroad." "The challenges in this area have not become fewer in number recently, perhaps, in some way, they have grown in numbers," the diplomat said.
"We continue to register the illegal actions running counter to international obligations by the authorities in a number of countries, above all, in the United States to infringe upon the legitimate rights and interests of our citizens. The situation is unacceptable," Dolgov said.
