Moscow is studying Washington's list of individuals against whom sanctions were imposed, and already puzzled by some of the names, Russian President's Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
"One can say straight away that we are extremely bewildered by the presence of some names on the list," Peskov said.
"So far I cannot say what the reaction is of other people on the US list but Ivanov perceived the news with humor," the president's press secretary said.
Ivanov spent 20-odd years serving in the KGB's First Main Directorate and later in the Russian External Intelligence Service, Peskov recalled.
"As a result of his intelligence activities he was already banned entry to a majority of countries in the West. So he is quite accustomed to this situation," Peskov said.
Are they Tea Party members?
General Strelnikov....... I thought he died
“US and the EU imposed travel sanctions on several officials from Russia
Can anyone here catch the irony of all that?
During the Communist era, the Soviet Union was forbidding its citizens to travel abroad.
Now, its the US and EU, “the paragons of freedom”, who do it.
THEY are showing to Putin how THEY respect the international laws!
Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the U.N. General Assembly, including the United States and ALL the European countries, reads as follow, EVERYONE has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.
Somehow I don't think he's worried about it.
