Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on human rights, has been traveling to Russia and before that the Soviet Union for decades. But this month, the Russian government denied him a visa for the first time, despite a personal intervention from the U.S. ambassador in Moscow.
"The Magnitsky bill is the reason I didn't get the visa. This is the first time," Smith said. "I was shocked. During the worst days of the Soviet Union I went there repeatedly."
И, добавим от себя, судя по всему, и дальше планировал repeatedly срать на голову принимающей стороне. А получив ушат того же самого за шиворот себе любимому, оказался - правильно, shocked. Ещё бы - this is the first time! "But not the last" - добавим мы; будут ещё.
