Britain imposes sanctions on Russian security officials

London / Moscow, August 20 (TASR) – The United Kingdom has banned seven Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) workers from poisoning Alexei Navalny on Friday. TASS announced this, citing a document from the British Foreign Office.

“We are sending a clear message that Russia’s use of chemical weapons violates international law and should be publicly investigated.” Reuters quoted British Foreign Secretary Dominique Robb as saying about the sanctions.

A document from the British embassy says it includes the freezing of bank accounts and a ban on seven FSB employees from entering the UK – Alexei Setov, head of the Constitutional Security and Counter-Terrorism Division, Grill Vasiliev, director of the Criminal Institution, Stanislav Makakov’s staff at the criminal agency. Vladimir Boktanov, head of the specialized technology center, and three FSB employees, Alexei Alexandrov, Ivan Osipov and Vladimir Banaev.

Toss recalled that this was the second set of sanctions introduced by London in connection with Navalny’s poisoning. In October 2020, the British government imposed sanctions on six Russians, including Alexander Portnikov, director of the FSB’s Secret Service, and Sergei Kryenko, the president’s deputy leader.

The Nazis fainted on a flight from Tomsk to Moscow last August. The pilots of the plane made an emergency landing in the Siberian city of Omsk, where they were hospitalized in the intensive care unit of the Department of Toxicology. Two days later, on August 22, doctors from the Omsk navigator allowed him to travel to Germany by special plane, where he was treated at the Charidae Clinic in Berlin. Navalny blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian secret service for the attack. Denies any role in Kremlin poisoning.
