(MOSCOW) JUST IN: Russia on Saturday imposed sanctions on 25 British diplomats in a move it described as a response to U.K. penalties against Russian officials over alleged human rights abuses earlier this year in connection with the death of Sergei Magnitsky, according to Politico #AceNewsDesk report

” In a statement, Russia’s foreign ministry said: https://www.mid.ru/ru/foreign_policy/news/-/asset_publisher/cKNonkJE02Bw/content/id/4449668 Thatin response to the unfriendly actions of the British authorities and on the basis of the principle of reciprocity, the Russian side made a decision to impose personal sanctions against 25 British representatives who are barred from entering the Russian Federation.” Moscow did not name which U.K. diplomats would be affected.”

” The British government in July announced: It had banned 25 Russian nationals from entering the U.K., as well as freezing some of their international assets, in connection with the death of Sergei Magnitsky, a Russian lawyer who died in police custody in 2009 after he uncovered corruption linked to several high-level local officials.” https://t.me/reuters_news_agency/48314
