MOSCOW, March 25 (Itar-Tass) – The Kremlin is ready to react accordingly if the Magnitsky List is published in the U.S., Russian president’s aide Yuri Ushakov said on Monday in reply to reporters’ request to comment on Washington’s plans to publish the list in April.
“Its shape is not yet clear, there were offers to expand it,” he said. “We must wait and see, and then we will possibly react,” Ushakov said.
He reiterated the Kremlin stance that the list and the Magnitsky Act itself “is an unfriendly move, no good will come of it, it will only aggravate relations”.
“This undertaking is very harmful for bilateral relations,” he is confident. He said Russia does not initiate any of such moves, “but only responds: this is not our choice,” the Kremlin aide said.
