Russia issues blacklist of US officials

13.04.2013, 12:46
Russia has published its own blacklist of US officials banned from entering the country in retaliation for Washington's move to name 18 Russians who allegedly committed human rights abuses.
"The war of lists is not our choice, but we cannot ignore outright blackmail," said the Russian foreign ministry in a statement, which includes a list of 18 US officials "implicated in human rights violations."The list released by the US Treasury Friday names 16 Russians allegedly linked to the death of jailed lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, as well as two Chechens tied to other alleged rights abuses, all of whom are now barred from travelling to the US or holding assets there under the 2012 Sergei Magnitsky Act.
