Associates of the Russian opposition leader discuss the sanctions list of 6 thousand people in Washington.
The team of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has called on U.S. senators to consider a new package of sanctions, using a more “subtle” approach aimed at middle-level government officials and public figures in connection with the war in Ukraine.
The team is discussing with senators a list of 6 thousand Russians, including employees of the military and special services, administrative workers, governors, legislators, even editors and heads of Russian media, against whom it is proposed to impose sanctions.
Navalny’s associates are also scheduled to meet with officials of the Department of State, the Ministry of Justice and other institutions in Washington.
Vladimir Ashurkov, executive director of Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Fund, said that the “avalanche of sanctions” imposed so far is having an impact in Russia.
