Head of the International Committee commented on the US sanction against employees of the Investigative Committee

According to Chairman of the Committee on International Affairs Leonid Slutskiy, “the US is ready to impose sanctions for the sake of sanctions, it has already become a general tool of American foreign policy. Without a twinge of conscience, Washington intervenes in the affairs of sovereign states, trying to achieve its geopolitical tasks. I’m sure that Russia's reaction to the next illegal US sanctions will be adequate”

“The United States continues to blindly impose sanctions against Russian citizens. Again, employees of the Investigative Committee were subjected to restrictions based on “reliable information” from the State Department on the detention of followers of the extremist organization Jehovah's Witnesses, who accused law enforcement authorities of alleged ill-treatment.

At the same time, the United States did not pay attention that such an authoritative body as the ECHR, which can in no way be accused of loyalty to the Russian authorities, refused to satisfy the requests of one of the adherents of Jehovah's Witnesses, and an independent judicial examination did not find any signs of the alleged mythical torture.

Thus, this proves one more time that the US is ready to impose sanctions for the sake of sanctions, it has already become a general tool of American foreign policy. Without a twinge of conscience, Washington intervenes in the affairs of sovereign states, trying to achieve its geopolitical tasks.

I’m sure that Russia's reaction to the next illegal US sanctions will be adequate,” said Leonid Slutskiy Slutskiy Leonid Eduardoviсh Slutskiy

Leonid Slutskiy also commented on the detention of the head of the Russophila movement Nikolai Malinov in Bulgaria. 

“This situation is worrying. We can’t completely exclude the political background in the light of anti-Russian hysteria, even despite the today’s statements by Prime Minister Boyko Borisov on the lack of connection between the charges of espionage against Malinov and Russian-Bulgarian relations.

We will definitely examine this situation, monitor its development and provide support in all possible directions,” concluded the Chairman of the Committee.
