Sergei Magnitsky Russia Grave


The U.S. Treasury has announced  the names of 18 Russian citizens who will have sanctions imposed on them  under the Magnitsky Act.

According to the wording of the act, the people listed are “persons  responsible for the detention, abuse, or death of Sergei Magnitsky, for the  conspiracy to defraud the Russian Federation of taxes on corporate profits  through fraudulent transactions and lawsuits against Hermitage, and for other  gross violations of human rights in the Russian Federation, and for other  purposes.”

Magnitsky was a Moscow-based lawyer for investment fund, Hermitage Capital,  who became notorious after allegedly  uncovering massive tax fraud. He died under suspicious circumstances while  serving jail time in 2009.

Those on the list will face visa bans and have assets frozen under the law.  The list has been widely referred to as a “blacklist”.

Vladimir  Putin‘s Russian government had repeatedly warned that the list would  damage relations. There has even been talk of a blacklist of US officials  with links  to Guantanamo Bay in response.

However, the list is far shorter than the Kremlin may have feared, and does  not include some of the big names that had reportedly been targeted. There had  been speculation that Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov would be on the list, but  his name does not appear, and no-one close to Putin was named.

Josh Rogin at Foreign Policy points  out that 16 of the names relate directly to the Magnitsky case. Two of the  names — Letscha Bogatirov and Kazbek Dukuzov — are Chechen police officers who  have been linked to human rights abuses.
