A bipartisan group of US senators has introduced a draft legislation to the US Congress on sanctions against Russia due to the situation with Russian blogger Alexey Navalny, the press service of senator Marco Rubio, a Republican from Florida, reported on Wednesday.
As the press service noted, the Holding Russia Accountable for Malign Activities Act of 2021 was reintroduced by US senators Marco Rubio and Chris Coons (a Democrat from Delaware) who were joined by Ben Cardin (a Democrat from Maryland), Mitt Romney (a Republican from Utah), Chris Van-Hollen (a Democrat from Maryland) and Dick Durbin (a Democrat from Illinois).
"This bill would impose targeted sanctions against Russian officials complicit in brazen violations of international law including the poisoning and imprisonment of opposition leader and anti-corruption activist Alexey Navalny," the statement said.
