Russia: UK responds to Navalny sentencing
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has called for the immediate release of Alexey Navalny after his sentencing in Moscow.
2 February 2021
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:
The UK calls for the immediate and unconditional release of Alexey Navalny and all of the peaceful protesters and journalists arrested over the last two weeks. Today's perverse ruling, targeting the victim of a poisoning rather than those responsible, shows Russia is failing to meet the most basic commitments expected of any responsible member of the international community.
