They stated they weren't seeking to sue Navalny, but wanted to discover out if Gunvor was of fascination to the Fee or if Timchenko could probably be a focus on of the Magnitsky sanctions. I reminded them that Timchenko is commonly viewed as to be Putin's bagman in Europe and need to increase a thicker pores and skin instead of suing (The Economist, Nemtsov, maybe other folks) those who publish things he doesn't like. I further emphasized that we are not remotely fascinated in staying remotely helpful to any one who is remotely connected with any one who is remotely connected with Gennady Timchenko.
