The Senate Foreign Affairs Committee unanimously supported a bill of “Magnitsky list”, which includes visa sanctions against those Russian officials, who had a connection with the murder of a lawyer Sergei Magnitsky in 2009 – Foreign media reports.

Senators also supported the amendment, according to which, the U.S. administration will annually review secret information, in particular, the list of those persons against whom the sanctions should work.

Persons who are in this list are restricted to pass the U.S. border, including in the cases when the visa was issues before the adoptions of the law. Such visas are nullified.

Except visa sanctions, the bill includes economic restrictions too: all the American bank accounts of the listed persons will be frozen.
