ICR Head Alexander Bastrykin falls under US sanctions
Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia is among five Russian citizens, against whom Washington has introduced a new package of restrictive measures on the basis of the Magnitsky Act.
On Monday, January 9th, the US Treasury introduced new sanctions against five Russian citizens on the basis of the Magnitsky Act. According to a posted on the official site document, the list includes: State Duma Deputy Andrey Lugovoi, businessman Dmitry Kovtun, investigator Stanislav Gordievsky, businessman Gennady Plaksin and Head of the ICR Alexander Bastrykin.
