Magnitsky's partner: Lukashenko pushing Russia to sanctions of EU


Belarusian dictator - the last person whose opinion on sanctions is to listen to the Russian leadership.

This was stated by Jamison Firestone, a lawyer and Sergey Magnitsky's partner, one of the supporters of the anti-corruption law.

"Lukashenko is the last person in the world to advise  Russia  how to avert travel bans and asset freezes.  The sanctions against Lukashenko and those who support his repressive regime have served as a model for the Magnitsky sanctions.  If Russia follows Lukashenko's advice, there is no doubt that the Magnitsky sanctions will quickly be adopted by the EU and most of the developed world," - he said.
