EU imposes new sanctions on Russia – World


The EU foreign ministers agree on new Russia sanctions because of the imprisonment of the Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny.

After the demand for the release of the Kremlin critic has not had any effect for weeks, the foreign ministers of the EU states are now drawing initial conclusions at a meeting in Brussels. The sanctions are to include property freezes and entry bans against those responsible for the detention of Nawalny. Moscow has so far rejected any claim as interference in internal affairs.

2.5 years in prison

A court in Moscow on Saturday dismissed Navalny’s appeal against his prison sentence. It thus confirmed a ruling from February that converted a suspended sentence imposed on the 44-year-old in 2014 into a prison sentence. The appellate court reduced the sentence by six weeks, so that Navalny now has to spend around two and a half years in a prison camp.

Navalny had not reported to the Russian police when he was treated for five months in Germany after being poisoned with a nerve agent. In mid-January he was arrested in Russia on his return from Germany. The imprisonment of Navalny sparked mass protests in Russia.
