WASHINGTON, February 3. /TASS/. US State Department spokesman John Kirby has refused to comment on Russia’s decision to ban entry to five former US officials.

"I’d refer you to the Russians to speak to that," Kirby told reporters on Tuesday.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday five Americans linked to the US law enforcement system have been barred from entry. The move comes in retaliation for the recent US expansion of the so-called Magnitsky list of sanctions against Russian officials.

The Russian blacklist includes former US attorney general Alberto Gonzales, former US undersecretary of defense Douglas Feith, former senior counsel at the CIA John Rizzo, former assistant attorney general Jay Scott Bybee and former general counsel of the department of defense William James Haynes II.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry said the expansion of the Magnitsky list that has been used for "groundless accusations against Russian officials" is dealing another blow to bilateral ties.
