WASHINGTON, January 9. /TASS/ The U.S. Department of the Treasury announced on Monday sanctions against five more Russian nationals, putting their names on the so-called Magnitsky list.

The blacklist has been supplemented with the following names: Alexander Bastrykin, the chief of Russia’s Investigative Committee, as well as Stanislav Gordiyevsky, Dmitry Kovtun, Andrei Lugovoi, and Gennady Plaksin.
