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 others citizens on the basis of their human rights record.
In the opinion of Russias Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the Magnitsky Act was a Republican conspiracy to destroy Mr. Obamas reset policy of constructively engaging Russia. The U.S. Congress adopted the Magnitsky Act on the same day it finally repealed the four decades-old Jackson-Vanik amendment, which required Russia to undergo every year a humiliating certification of its human rights record to qualify for normal trade relations with the U.S.
