London, September 7
Britain’s overseas Minister Dominic Raab mentioned he had summoned Russia’s ambassador to the UK to precise his concern on the poisoning of Alexei Navalny.
Navalny, a outstanding critic of President Vladimir Putin, was airlifted to Germany final month after collapsing on a flight from the Siberian metropolis of Tomsk to Moscow. Germany has concluded he was poisoned with Novichok.
“Today the UK summoned Russia’s Ambassador to the UK to register deep concern about the poisoning of Alexey @navalny,” Raab mentioned on Twitter.
“It’s completely unacceptable that a banned chemical weapon has been used and Russia must hold a full, transparent investigation.”
Moscow says it has seen no proof he was poisoned.
Raab added that he was relieved to listen to Navalny had been taken out of his medically-induced coma.
In a separate assertion, a overseas workplace spokesperson mentioned: “There is a case here for Russia to answer. This took place on Russian soil, against a Russian citizen. They have international obligations to uphold. “This is nothing wanting an assault in opposition to the foundations primarily based worldwide system which retains our societies protected.” — Reuters
