On Tuesday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia and the United States are not holding any talks on the potential revision neither of the Russian law banning the adoption of Russian children by US families nor of Magnitsky Act.
"I cannot say to what extent it was directly related to the Magnitsky Act, as this is about a US law. We are absolutely unsatisfied with it. But It would be completely incorrect to again try attributing it to allegations that we are attempting to interfere in the legislative process, which is organized by the US Congress. The meeting [with Rohrabacher] did not mention it, we certainly do not do these sorts of things," Kosachev said at a Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency press conference.
The Magnitsky Act was adopted in 2012 to introduce travel bans and financial sanctions on Russians allegedly involved in the death of Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky in 2009 during pre-trial detention on conspiracy and tax evasion charges.
