EU ready to sanction Russia over Navalny poisoning

The European Union has agreed to move ahead with sanctions against Russia over the chemical weapon poisoning of opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

The understanding came at a meeting of EU Foreign ministers in Luxembourg.

The push for sanctions came after the UN chemical weapons watchdog confirmed a finding by Germany, France and Sweden that Russia had poisoned its opposition leader Navalny by a nerve agent called Novichok which is against international law and the chemical weapons convention.
