The first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Frants Klintsevich called including the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov in the sanctions list of the USA not only «Russophobia» and «blatant idiocy».

Wednesday, the US introduced sanctions in the «Magnitsky list» of five Russians, including Kadyrov. According to published on the website of the U.S. Treasury additions to the list, sanctions imposed against Ayub Katayev, Julia Maiorova, Andrey Pavlov and Oleksiy Sheshenya.

«The making of Ramzan Kadyrov to the us sanctions list is not only Russophobia. This is outright idiocy. Only the blind can not see that Chechnya today is an island of stability in the Muslim world, becoming a serious obstacle to the spread of international terrorism. It is clear that the specificity of the East is present here. But Ramzan Kadyrov in the framework of the law does what it needs to do,» wrote the Senator in Facebook.

The United States in December 2012 adopted the «Magnitsky act» on sanctions against Russians, sacrament, according to the American authorities, to human rights violations. The Russian authorities, in turn, has repeatedly stated about the inadmissibility of politicization of the «Magnitsky case».
