US Sanctions 6 Russians Over Arrest of Opposition Politician Kara-Murza - 3rd March 2023

'"The United States reiterates its call for Kara-Murza's immediate and unconditional release, and is committed to ensuring that Vladimir Putin’s attempts to silence critics will not succeed," U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement.

The sanctions, announced by the Treasury and State departments, target Russians Elena Anatolievna Lenskaya, Andrei Andreevich Zadachin and Danila Yurievich Mikheev for serious human rights abuses under the U.S. Global Magnitsky Act.

The Treasury Department said Zadachin, a Russian special investigator, ordered that a criminal case be filed against Kara-Murza over a speech he made to the Arizona House of Representatives.'
