European Union Leaders Call On Russia To Release Alexei Navalny

Outlook

The European Union used a video summit of its 27 leaders to call on Russia to immediately release opposition leader Alexei Navalny and make sure that his rights are fully respected.

Navalny was arrested last Sunday at a Moscow airport as he tried to enter the country from Germany, where he had spent five months recovering from nerve agent poisoning he blames on the Kremlin.

EU summit host Charles Michel said the leaders 'expect Russia to urgently proceed with the independent and transparent investigation into the attack on his life."

Michel also insisted that Moscow 'fully cooperate with the Organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons to ensure an impartial international investigation" is carried out into the attack.
