Arraigning a corpse » RUSSIA-US-TRADE-POLITICS-WTO-RIGHTS

A picture taken on December 7, 2012, shows snow clad grave of Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky with his portrait on the tomb (C) at the Preobrazhenskoye cemetery in Moscow. The US Congress drew today a furious response from the Kremlin by passing legislation that targeted human rights abusers in the prison death of Magnitsky. Moscow immediately called the action “a theater of the absurd” and vowed to retaliate, turning what would have been a boost in trade relations between the two powers into another source of friction.
