US, E.U. verhängen Sanktionen über Russland wegen Nawalny Vergiftung

March 3, 2021 - Sowohl US wie auch EU verhängen Sanktionen über neun hohe Russische Beamte, die eine Rolle bei der Vergiftung und Inhaftierung des prominenten russischschen Oppositionellen, Alexej Nawalny, gespielt haben.

The U.S. measures against seven officials marked the Biden administration’s first sanctions against associates of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In addition, 14 entities associated with Russia’s biological and chemical agent production were hit with punitive measures, including nine commercial parties in Russia, three in Germany, one in Switzerland and a Russian government research institute, Reuters said.

The European Union imposed largely symbolic sanctions on four senior Russian officials close to Putin, a move agreed by EU ministers last week in response to Navalny’s jailing.

Navalny, 44, an anti-corruption investigator, was arrested in Moscow in January upon returning from Germany, where he spent five months recovering from a nerve-agent poisoning that he blames on the Kremlin. Russian authorities have rejected the accusation.

In February, a court sentenced Navalny to two years and eight months in prison for violating the terms of his probation while recuperating in Germany. The sentence stems from a 2014 embezzlement conviction that Navalny has rejected as fabricated.
