Some EU countries call for sanctions against Russia over arrest of opposition leader Navalny

In a summit, European Union countries called for sanctions against Russian individuals responsible for violence during anti-government protests and for the arrest of opposition leader Alexei Navalny. This weekend, anti-government demonstrations that lead to 3,300 detentions led up to clashes between police and protesters who demanded Navalny’s liberation. “As of Today, there has been no proposal” of concrete sanctions against Moscow, EU’s Foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said.
