MOSCOW, December 18 (Itar-Tass) —— The State Duma offered again to expand the effect of the bill in retaliation to the Magnitsky act and spread it on the citizens of those countries, which decided to ban Russian citizens from arriving there and arrest their assets over the involvement of Russian citizens in human rights violations. United Russia deputy Mikhail Starshinov has drafted the relevant amendment to the second reading of the foresaid highly publicized legislative initiative.
This amendment is included in the chart of the amendments, which the relevant State Duma Committee for Constitutional Legislation and State Construction recommended for approval. The deputies will not meet for separate debates on the bill, the debates will be held in a poll, a source in the committee told Itar-Tass.
Meanwhile, just on Monday at the LDPR initiative the State Duma committee refused at its meeting to expand the effect of the law on representatives of other countries, where the human rights of Russian citizens are violated.
