Russia sharply criticizes US human rights bill

Dec. 14, 2012 9:32 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 14, 2012 9:32 P.M.)
MOSCOW (Reuters) -- Russia said a bill signed by US President Barack Obama on Friday to punish Russian human rights abusers was "shortsighted and dangerous" and called it "overt interference into our internal affairs".

A Foreign Ministry statement put most of the blame for the Magnitsky Act legislation on US lawmakers rather than Obama, saying Russia regretted he could not overcome "those who ... see our country not as a partner but as an enemy."
