Russia gave the canadian response to the “Magnitsky list”
The representative of the Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova announced a ban on entry into Russia of a number of figures from Canada. Her review posted on the Agency’s website.
“We have repeatedly warned canadian authorities against attempts to assist the sanctions pressure on Russia, warning that such actions unanswered will remain. Unfortunately, the official Ottawa under the pretext of the recently adopted anti-Russian “Magnitsky act” once again imposed restrictions in respect of our citizens,” — said in a statement.
The commentary suggests that Moscow has to act on the mirror. “Based on the principle of reciprocity, the decision to close the entry into Russia a number of canadian leaders. The list is long, it has dozens of names. We are talking about those Russophobic minded citizens of Canada, who are systematically engaged in the destruction of bilateral relations,” says Zakharova.
