Would no doubt include every single person in a position of power there

Moscow has warned Washington against publishing a list of Russian officials who face sanctions for alleged human rights abuses.

President Vladimir Putin's spokesman said on Friday that publication of the list would severely strain relations.

The list, which was expected to be released Friday, is authorized by the Magnitsky Act, a law passed by the U.S. Congress and signed by President Barack Obama last December.
