    Published on October 16, 2020

    European Union has imposed sanctions on six Russian officials and one organisation over the poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny. Only a day ago, the Russian foreign minister had warned that Moscow might respond with similar measures.

    The decision was agreed upon among the 27 EU representatives to Brussels. The list includes two high level officials in the Presidential Executive Office, a director of the federal security service and two deputy ministers in the Russian defense ministry. The EU is also targeting the State Scientific Research Institute for Organic Chemistry and Technology.
