CEC head Pamfilova says indifferent to possible U.S. sanctions against her

MOSCOW. Sept 23 (Interfax) - Russian Central Elections Commission (CEC) Chairperson Ella Pamfilova has said she's indifferent to possible U.S. sanctions against her, and she deems confidence of Russian voters to be the most important thing.

"I could not care less about possible sanctions, especially those based on snitching. The fate of snitches is pitiful and despicable. Confidence of our citizens, our voters is what matters most to me," Pamfilova told Interfax on Thursday.

The Rules Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives has approved an amendment to the 2022 defense appropriations bill, which recommends that sanctions be imposed on 35 Russian officials and businessmen suspected by the Committee of bearing a relation to violation of human rights. Pamfilova is one of the persons on the possible blacklist.
