The Russian Embassy in London has threatened sanctions on the “Magnitsky case”

The Russian Embassy in London has threatened sanctions on the "Magnitsky case"

The Russian Embassy in London expressed outrage at the decision of British authorities to impose sanctions against 25 Russians. Among them, we recall, was the head of the Investigative Committee Alexander Bastrykin and Deputy Prosecutor General Viktor grin. In a statement on the website of the Russian Embassy indicated that the Russian side reserves the right to take retaliatory steps “due to the hostile decision of the UK”. The diplomats considered it an outrageous inclusion in the “black list” of senior executives of the Prosecutor General and the Investigative Committee, as well as judges. Recall that the UK has imposed new sanctions on nearly 50 citizens from several countries, including Russia, associated with the “Magnitsky case”. This is the first restrictive measures by the British authorities, declared after the country’s withdrawal from the European Union. Just the list includes 47 people and two organizations. The sanctions were adopted under the British version of “Magnitsky act” adopted in the U.S. in 2012. The law was named after the name of the auditor of investment Fund Hermitage Capital Sergey Magnitsky who died in Russian jail in 2009 under strange circumstances.
