Alexei Pushkov: "Sanctions against Ilyumzhinov contrary to logic and common sense"

It is useless to look for logic and common sense in the actions of the United States, which are introducing new sanctions against Russian citizens in connection with the Syrian crisis, said State Duma deputy Alexei Pushkov. The United States has long been gone from the principles of international law. They make arbitrary decisions and announce them legal. We must understand that this is not true, "- said the famous Russian politician and broadcaster.

Recall the recent US Treasury Department put in the sanctions list of FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov - allegedly "due to relationship with the leadership of the Central Bank of Syria."
Ilyumzhinov is convinced that he became a defendant in the list due to his peacekeeping positions and active participation in international politics.
