Russia’s Foreign Ministry has expressed disappointment with the European Union’s decision to sanction four high-ranking Russian officials responsible for the treatment of Russian opponent Aleksei Navalny and repression against his supporters, writes AFP.

“The decision taken by the (EU) Foreign Affairs Council on February 22 under a twisted pretext to prepare new illegal and unilateral sanctions against Russian citizens is disappointing,” the ministry said in a statement.

EU foreign ministers agreed on Monday to prepare sanctions against several high-ranking Russian officials in response to the incarceration of Russian opponent Aleksei Navalny.

According to Reuters, diplomatic sources claim that the head of the Russian Committee of Inquiry, which deals with all major crimes, the director of the penitentiary directorate, the director of the Russian National Guard and the general prosecutor, will be targeted. The sanctions will be a freeze on EU assets and a ban on travel to member countries.
