The European Parliament demanded to tighten sanctions against Russia because of Navalny

The European Parliament demanded tougher sanctions against Russia due to the situation with Alexei Navalny. This is stated in the resolution published on the website of the body.

Brussels condemned Navalny's alleged poisoning and ordered an international investigation into the circumstances of the incident. They also want to involve the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in the proceedings.

The European Parliament decided to stop the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, introduce new sanctions against Russian officials and civil servants, and revise the EU's policy towards Moscow as a whole. Members of the association are urged to isolate Russia in every possible way at international forums, for example, not to invite them to G7 meetings.

In addition, the European Parliament decided to invest in the development of democracy in Russia and to adopt an EU strategy to support Russian non-governmental organizations, independent media and reporters. The text of the resolution also states that an analogue of the “Magnitsky Act” should be adopted as soon as possible as another sanctions mechanism.

The development of such an analogue became known on September 16. The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said that the body has practically developed a new sanctions regime. The development of the project was resumed after the hospitalization of Alexei Navalny: he felt sick on the morning of August 20 during a flight from Tomsk to Moscow, the plane urgently landed in Omsk. On August 22, the oppositionist was taken to a Berlin clinic.

The German authorities announced the poisoning of a Russian citizen with the poison of the Novichok group. Russian doctors claim that the tests did not show the presence of any poisons in Navalny's body. The head physician of the Omsk ambulance hospital No. 1, Alexander Murakhovsky, claimed that the patient had a carbohydrate balance disorder.
