In Canada, the "Magnitsky law" came into force

14
Entered into force, the Canadian "Magnitsky law" is contrary to common sense, reports RIA News statement of the Russian Embassy in Ottawa.




Contrary to common sense, law number S-226 was hastily signed. This is an irrational law sponsored by a taxing fugitive fraudster and people who hate Russia,
the statement said the embassy.

The “fugitive swindler” is probably referring to the founder of Hermitage Capital, William Browder, who was convicted in absentia by a Russian court on 9 years in prison in a tax fraud case.

Earlier, the Canadian parliament notified that the Magnitsky Law, which provides for sanctions against foreign officials suspected of corruption and human rights violations, was signed by the Queen and entered into force.

In May, Canadian Foreign Minister Hristia Freeland stated that the government supported the imposition of sanctions against officials from Russia and other countries that may be involved in human rights violations, on the basis of a law similar to the “Magnitsky Act” in the United States. The document will allow Ottawa to confiscate the assets and property of foreign nationals who may be involved in the violation of human rights.

As the director of the North American Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Georgy Borisenko, stated last week, if the adoption of this law will result in an expansion of the Canadian “black list” in relation to Russian citizens, then Moscow will take mirror measures.

      if, as a result of the adoption of this law, the Canadian “black list” will be expanded in relation to citizens of the Russian Federation, then Moscow will take mirror measures.

        In my opinion, a very significant action on our part is to withdraw all denyuzhki from US securities and other Western assets and return to their homeland.

            Taking the oath of a cabinet member, Hristia Freeland put her hand on the Ukrainian Gospel, and at the end said in Ukrainian, "Dyakoy!"

    It is very interesting how many Canadian citizens permanently reside in Russia and keep their deposits in Russian banks?

      Canada is a member of the British Commonwealth of Nations, a voluntary union of sovereign states that includes Great Britain and almost all of its former dominions, colonies and protectorates. So they are de jure colony still

    --- "The document will allow Ottawa to confiscate the assets and property of foreign nationals that may be involved in the violation of human rights." --- Purely thoughtless, looking at the US parrot trick. Well, and if sanctions are applied objectively, then the confiscation of assets and property will have to be with their own mentors - that is, by the state.

    The Magnitsky Law is directed only against Russian thieves, sorry, "oligarchs", killer raiders and those who guard them.
    And these, Russian, and they rob you. Have pity on them, wretched
