Kasparov on “The Myth of a U.S.-Russia Strategic Partnership”

Garry Kasparov

United Civil Front leader Garry Kasparov writes in the Wall Street Journal today that given Vladimir Putin’s repression of his own people and the way he cozies up to dictators (Chavez, Assad, Lukashenko), the U.S. should not be interested in a strategic partnership with the Kremlin.

Rather, he writes, U.S. lawmakers should do what they can to promote human rights in Russia, namely through the  passage of the Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act, which would “bring visa and asset sanctions against Russian government functionaries culpable of criminal and human rights abuses.”
