Moscow Says U.S. Favors Blackwater Over Bout | News | The Moscow Times

The Foreign Ministry fired a new salvo at the United States over the Viktor Bout affair Tuesday, saying the U.S. government had no right to jail the Russian businessman for “conspiring” to sell arms but to only slap a fine on a U.S. company that actually broke the law with arms sales.

“The U.S. court system sentenced Russian citizen Viktor Bout to 25 years simply for ‘conspiring’ (and without proof) to sell weapons to Colombian rebels,” the ministry said in a statement.

“Blackwater has officially admitted to making illegal arms shipments to Iraq, Afghanistan and Sudan,” it said. “Isn’t this a clear manifestation of the double standards of American justice?”
