U.S. Magnitsky law will be beneficial – rights activist Ponomaryov


Veteran of the Russian human rights movement and For Human Rights group leader Lev Ponomaryov has welcomed the decision by the United States House of Representatives to approve the Magnitsky bill, which could impose visa and financial sanctions against Russian officials.

“It is a concrete signal and I think it will be of benefit to Russia,” Ponomaryov told Interfax on Thursday.

There was no genuine inquiry into the death of Hermitage Capital lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, and the Russian officials and law enforcers responsible for his death have not been punished, he said.

“The Russian public demanded an answer from the authorities. No one answered to us. On the other hand, all the circumstances surrounding Magnitsky’s death indicate that he was killed. Just as during the Soviet period, there is some impulse coming from the West,” Ponomaryov said.

The U.S. Magnitsky bill will have an effect, he said.

“We are perfectly aware that many like to visit the West, keep money in the West, their children study in the West. If they behave badly, their accounts will be frozen and they will be barred from travelling to the West. There will be something to think about,” Ponomaryov said. займы на карту без отказа займы онлайн на карту срочно zp-pdl.com www.zp-pdl.com займ на карту
