Who was in this "public" version of the list? Why "public"? - Yes, because there is information that besides it, our American "friends" have a secret part at their disposal, the announcement of which may allegedly inflict an irreversible blow to the security of the country ...
So, the "Magnitsky list" is in front of you:

These people (according to the letter of the law adopted in the USA) will not be able to enter the territory of the United States, and their accounts in American banks (if any) will be frozen.
Senator Benjamin Cardin, one of the main ideological inspirers of the struggle for the rights of individual people, managed to speak out about the list adopted recently in the US (in the US, Magnitsky’s list is often referred to as Cardin’s list, as the authorities cannot explain to ordinary Americans who why in the United States precisely this surname provoked an urgent need to recall human rights in Russia, forgetting about the rights of ordinary Americans themselves).
Mr. Cardin called the adoption of the Magnitsky list historical and (important) only the first step. Well, with the historical - understandable. Indeed, the creation of a list of banned persons and the freezing of certain hypothetical accounts in American banks based on the excessive suspiciousness of individual citizens will go down in the history of world jurisprudence. But the words about the “first” step are interesting. Apparently, Senator Cardin is again loading his worn-out powder flasks with gunpowder in order to inflict another democratic blow on “dense” and “anti-legal” Russia. Well, it’s necessary for the senator to somehow work out the money of American taxpayers ... Although why are we so sure that Cardin will deliver his next “sizzling” blow to Russia? Perhaps, in his office, the walls are pasted over with other versions of the lists à la Magnitsky - for Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, for example. And there’s Iran, Syria, China, Cuba — and Senator Cardin’s work — there’s no end ... Just have time to read foreign opposition publications, meet with representatives of US-funded foreign NGOs and cook up your “hot” lists.
Such a person as William Browder was very enthusiastic about accepting the Magnitsky list in the USA. Still the Browder was not inspired by this circumstance! After all, it was Browder who once implemented the criminal tax evasion scheme in Russia, using his “wonderful” fund of Kalmyk invalids to cover up the work. After identifying this scheme, Browder’s business in Russia was declared illegal, and he himself was banned from entering the country. Browder was unable to forgive the Russian authorities that they had deprived him of the opportunity to conduct his dirty business, after which the story of Magnitsky’s death, which (death), by the way, was more beneficial for Browder himself, and began to be exaggerated with violent energy. Now Browder is happy that he has revenged on Russia he has plundered. At the same time, Browder expresses some dissatisfaction with the fact that the list turned out to be shorter than the one he was counting on. Here is a quote from Mr. Browder:
But there are still many names that need to be added to this list - both those who were involved in the unlawful arrest, torture and death of Magnitsky, and those who were involved in other egregious human rights violations in Russia.
The question is, since when did “friend Bill” (Browder) become so concerned about the observance of human rights in the Russian Federation? Not long since, when he began to arrange one-day companies for helpless people with disabilities in Elista, paying those “luxurious” fees for entire 500 rubles ...
In an interview with the Russia Today TV channel, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov bluntly stated that it was Mr. Browder who had lobbied Magnitsky’s act in the United States. Lavrov called the list adopted in the United States a tool that replaced the “anti-Soviet baton,” which for a long time was the Jackson-Vanik amendment.
Quote Sergei Lavrov:
After it became obvious, members of Congress decided to somehow compensate for the anti-Soviet (and now anti-Russian) “bludgeon” and came up with the “law of the name of Sergei Magnitsky”. This law was most actively lobbied on Capitol Hill by William Browder, and then it rushed through all the countries of Europe and offered to adopt “anti-magnetic laws” in European parliaments.
At the same time, Lavrov noted that if the USA is so concerned about the death of Magnitsky in the Russian SIZO, then why is the investigation into the death of Alexander Litvinenko in the UK so difficult, and why does the Netherlands not provide information about the suicide investigation in one of the local prisons of Alexander Dolmatov .
Well, now from the reaction to the published list of Magnitsky, let's say, high-ranking people, it is worth moving to the reaction of ordinary Russians to the list adopted in the USA. And for ordinary Russians, this list, by and large, both stood and rode ... Why? Yes, because 99% of Russians do not have accounts in American banks, and ordinary Russians do not stand in line for a visa to the United States. Therefore, protection of their rights by the main world democrats seems to be a very ephemeral substance, from which neither hot nor cold. And if ordinary Russians from the Magnitsky list are neither hot nor cold, then whose rights does he protect? ..
