WASHINGTON, February 1. /TASS/ The US Department of the Treasury announced on Monday sanctions against five more Russian nationals, putting their names on the so-called Magnitsky list.
This was done under the Sergey Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act adopted in December 2012 against the persons the US authorities believe are responsible for the death of Hermitage Capital lawyer Sergey Magnitsky in Russia.
The list includes Alexey Anichin, who was once Russia's deputy interior minister and used to head the Investigative Committee. Three more Russian nationals - Boris Kibis, Pavel Lapshov and Oleg Urzhumtsev are investigators. There has been no information as of yet about the fifth person on the sanction list - Yevgeny Antonov.
