MOSCOW, March 17, /ITAR-TASS/. Andrei Klishas, the chair of the Russian Federation Council Committee for constitutional legislation, judicial and legal issues and development of civil society, said on Monday he was not afraid of the consequences of U.S.- imposed sanctions and was even pleased to be in the company of respected people mentioned in the U.S. list.
“I do not have any assets in the territory of the United States. All my assets, including finances and real estate, are in Russia, except for a country-house in Switzerland, which is not even an EU member,” Klishas told Itar-Tass, adding he was flattered by the U.S. government’s appraisal of his work.
“The high appraisal which the U.S. government has given to my work is absolutely justified,” Klishas said jokingly.
A list of Russian and Ukrainian officials subject to U.S. sanctions was published in the United States on Monday. It includes Vladislav Surkov, an aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin; Russian president’s adviser Sergei Glazyev; Leonid Slutsky, the head of the Russian State Duma Committee for CIS Affairs; Andrei Klishas, the head of the Russian State Duma Committee for Constitutional Legislation; Valentina Matvienko, the speaker of the Russian Federation Council; Russian Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin; Yelena Mizulina, the head of the Russian State Duma Committee for the Affairs of Family, Women and Children; Sergei Aksyonov, the prime minister of the Republic of Crimea; Vladimir Konstantinov, the speaker of the Crimean State Council (parliament); Viktor Medvedchuk, the leader of the Ukrainian Choice public movement and Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich.
