MOSCOW (Sputnik) – According to Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Zakharova, this bill will lead to the further deterioration of ties between two countries. 

“We are deeply disappointed …  In many ways, it was simply copied from an odious US bill named after Magnitsky and leads to further deterioration of Russia-Canada ties as it is directly aimed at [the] introduction of sanctions against the citizens of our country,” she told a briefing. If the bill is adopted, “it will not be left without an appropriate response”, Zakharova added.

The consideration of the bill was initially scheduled for October 2, but will take place later on Wednesday.
