Kadyrov not on “Magnitsky List.”

Golden Gun

Ramzan Kadyrov didn’t make the “Magnitsky List.” The list comes out of the Magnitsky Act, a bipartisan proposal signed into law in DEC 2012 designed to punish Russians responsible for the death of Sergei Magnitsky by prohibiting entrance into the US and access to the banking system. The list came out last week and two Chechens were mentioned — the accused assassins of the Russian edition of Forbes, Paul Klebnikov, and former Kadyrov bodyguard Umar Israilov who was preparing to testify against Kadyrov. But Kadyrov himself didn’t make the list? Why not? Is the rumor of an additional “secret list” true?
