USA made Kadyrov in the «Magnitsky list»

Made in the United States sanctions the «Magnitsky list» of five Russians, including the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov. About it reports the Ministry of Finance.

The U.S. Treasury has said that Kadyrov is responsible for extrajudicial killings, torture or other gross human rights violations committed against persons seeking to uncover illegal activities of officials of the government of the Russian Federation.

Also in the «Magnitsky list» has made Ayub Katayev, Julia Mayorov, Andrey Pavlov and Oleksiy Sheshenya.

The lawyer of the consulting company Firestone Duncan and the auditor of the Fund Hermitage Capital Sergei Magnitsky, who uncovered a scheme of large-scale embezzlement from the Russian budget, was arrested in 2008, and in 2009 died in the detention center in Moscow at the age of 37 ostensibly from cardiac problems. Russian human rights activists claim that the authorities deliberately ignored the poor state of health of Magnitsky, in order to silence him.

In December 2012, the US passed the Magnitsky act, imposing personal sanctions against persons responsible for violation of human rights and the rule of law in Russia. Initially, the list included 18 people. The «Magnitsky list» was extended several times, most recently in January of 2017, when the US introduced the head of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation Alexander Bastrykin and the state Duma Deputy Andrei Lugovoi.

In December 2016, the US Congress adopted the «Global Magnitsky act», in the same month it was signed by President Barack Obama. According to the law, the President of the United States may impose sanctions against the citizens of any foreign state, if it is proven that they are relevant to gross violations of human rights and corruption. Sanctions could include a ban on entering the US and freezing of assets.
