MOSCOW, June 09 /ITAR-TASS/. Alexei Pushkov, the head of the Russian State Duma Committee for International Affairs, has called for imposing possible sanctions targeted against individuals and Ukraine as a state for violation of the rights of Russian journalists working in Ukraine.
Pushkov said that Russia could prepare a list of personal sanctions against individuals like the “Guantanamo list” for example. The list may contain a list of persons linked to human rights abuses or sanctions targeted against individuals.
“They should know they will have to pay a certain price for kidnapping Russian journalists,” Pushkov said in the Svobodnoye Vremya (Free Time) program on the REN TV television channel.
“It has already become normal that Russian journalists are arrested or expelled from Ukraine every three or four days,” Pushkov went on to say.
“If we keep silent and turn to international organizations, then they will think that no consequences will follow,” Pushkov said in conclusion.
