A list of 18 alleged Russian human rights abusers was published on Friday by the Treasury Department, despite retaliatory threats from officials in President Vladimir Putin’s government.

“We have our differences with Russia,” Jay Carney, the White House spokesman, told The Hill. “We make them clear. Human rights is an issue that we have disagreements with them on at times, and, you know, we are very frank and candid about that.

“And we will engage with the Russians on those issues as well as the others that we have,” Carney added, “some of which allow for opportunities of cooperation that are important for the national security interests of the United States as well as for the security, in the case of North Korea, of that region of the world.”

The list details Russians who face financial and travel sanctions, The Hill reports. Legislation that was passed four months ago and named after a Russian whistleblower who died in custody required that the data be released.

Russian officials, however, warned that publicizing the list would cause “negative developments” in U.S.-Russian relations — adding that they may provide their own list of 104 blacklisted U.S. officials.

That would be the so-called “Guantánamo List,” named after the Cuban prison where suspected terrorists are being held without charge, The Hill reports.
