Shortly before the New Year, U.S. President Barack Obama signed into law a bill that blacklists Russian officials allegedly implicated in the death of Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky and in other “gross violations of human rights.” The 37-year-old lawyer, in 2009, died in a Russian prison where he was sent to by some Interior Ministry officials after blowing the whistle on their multi-million tax scam.
Russia hit back by adopting an “anti-Magnitsky” law that not only mirrored American sanctions but also banned U.S. adoptions of Russian orphans. It is for the first time in the history of their relations that Russia/the Soviet Union and the U.S. have resorted to blacklisting each other’s citizens on the basis of their human rights record.
