German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas during a joint press conference with Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau in Berlin said that the participants in the sanctions list in the Navalny case included the persons “responsible for this crime.”

“Our measures are aimed at individuals and institutions who can be considered as responsible for this crime,” the Foreign Minister said.

According to Maas, this is a signal for the capital of the Russian Federation from the Europeans.

He also said that the poisoning of Navalny “casts a shadow” on relations between the EU and Russia, and the incident itself will not remain without consequences.

The sanctions list also included the head of the Russian president’s internal policy department, Andrei Yarin, Putin’s plenipotentiary representative in the Siberian Federal District, Sergei Menyailo, and Russian Deputy Defense Ministers Alexei Krivoruchko and Pavel Popov.

All participants in the sanctions list were banned from entering the European Union for a year. In addition, they froze their financial assets in the EU countries.

Note that the State Research Institute of Organic Chemistry and Technology (GosNIIOKhT), against which sanctions were imposed, is a place creating a “Newbie”.
