“The war has to end. Then there have to be reparations and there has to be a democratic government before we can ever look at Russia the same again”, said the Kremlin critic.

Bill Browder is an American-British investor, author, and head of the global Magnitsky Justice Campaign — a human rights movement in honour of his friend, and former lawyer Sergei Magnitsky who died in 2009 while in pre-trial detention in Russia after alleged mistreatment.

Magnitsky had been working to expose corruption and misconduct among Russian officials for London-based investment fund Hermitage Capital, of which Browder is the CEO and co-founder.

A fierce Kremlin critic, Bill Browder has been described as Vladimir Putin’s arch-enemy. The passing of the Magnitsky Act prompted the Russian leader to issue a series of warrants for his arrest and requests for his extradition.

Euronews spoke to Browder in Brussels during the ‘Make Russia Pay’ event which addressed how to use frozen Russian assets to reconstruct Ukraine. We asked him how the Magnitsky Act came about, and how it is being used in light of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
