Kadyrov noted that violate human rights in the United States, not in Chechnya. He added that the Americans can’t forgive him for what he has dedicated his life to the fight against terrorism.

«But let US not worry. I haven’t received orders to enter the land of the United States,» — said the head of Chechnya, Recalling the Hero of the Soviet Union the Mawlid Visaitova that «horses reached the Elbe, and received the order of «Legion of honor» from the President of America.»

Extension list

On Wednesday, the U.S. Treasury has published a report on the extension of the sanctions list, adopted in accordance with the «Magnitsky act». It made the head of Chechnya and four Russians: Ayub Katayev, Julia Mayorov, Andrey Pavlov and Alexey Chechenya. The restrictions include a ban on entering the US and freezing of assets in the country.

The U.S. Treasury has based its decision on «gross violations of human rights, recognized by the world community».

In the document it is stated that Kadyrov is in control of the administration, which, according to Washington, allegedly involved in the disappearances and killings «without trial».

Politicized history

«The Magnitsky act» is an overtly politicized story, he has no legal right to exist, says the head of the international Committee of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev.

The Senator thinks it is wrong to engage in discussions about the specific reasons for the inclusion in the us sanctions lists of certain citizens of Russia, «because then you have to recognize the legitimacy of the existence of the «Magnitsky Act» as such and try to talk about who in this list is more appropriate, and who — less».
