Khodorkovsky supports the supplemented «Magnitsky list»

Baltic News Network

The imprisoned former CEO of Yukos Mikhail Khodorkovsky has approved the list of Russian officials who are suggested being banned to enter Western countries by the opponent Garry Kasparov.

As reported earlier, Khodorkovsky suggested the British Prime Minister David Cameron banning many high Russian officials to enter United Kingdom. The list, which includes 308 people, was originally initiated by the former world chess champion Garry Kasparov, Sunday Telegraph reported.

Khodorkovsky’s lawyars said he had not discussed such suggestions with them and had not made a list of officials who, in his opinion, are blamable for violations of human rights. However, later the press secretary of Khodorkovsky and his partner Platon Lebedev published a full answer of the imprisoned oligarch.

“The British government with the Olympic games can do something to raise importance of human rights. In June 2011 one of the Russian opposition leaders Garry Kasparov presented a list of persons who are involved in violations of human rights to the US House of Representatives. I would like the United Kingdom to read carefully this list and compare it to the list of the Russian delegation planning to arrive in London in 2012,” the answer said.

The list suggesting ban to enter Western countries includes the Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vladislav Surkov, founder of the movement “Nashi”, the prosecutor general Yury Chaika, senior prosecutor related to the Yukos case Dmitry Shohin, and others. The list does not include the Russian President Vladimir Putin, because, in Khodorkovsky’s opinion, there are a lot of things which Putin can do to start a way of democracy and reforms in Russia. In his opinion, Olympic games will be an opportunity for Putin to learn such values as respect, friendship, and equality.

In February 2011, 22 British deputies from various parties, following the initiative of the European Affairs Minister Chris Bryant, suggested the British government to introduce sanctions against Russian officials who are included in the 1000-pages file of Bryant in the Magnitsky’s case. The so called “Magnitsky list” is a black list including various high Russian officials who are related to violations in the sphere of human rights.

Later the Minister told that some of persons in the list have been included in the unofficial black list of the immigration service, though there haven’t been any official confirmations about this fact from the UK government. payday loan займ на карту https://zp-pdl.com/get-a-next-business-day-payday-loan.php www.zp-pdl.com срочный займ на карту
