Despite the largest-ever deployment of Russian military on the Ukrainian border, the EU will not impose more sanctions. Its response to the treatment of hunger-striking Putin critic Alexei Navalny: Nothing but appeals.
A Moscow court has ruled that the Kremlin critic defamed a Russian World War II veteran and ordered a fine of nearly €9,500. Earlier, the same court upheld Navalny's prison sentence for a parole violation.
The Russian opposition figure says he is suffering from fever, but has vowed to continue his hunger strike. He has been moved to a sick ward and tested for coronavirus, local media reported.
The jailed Kremlin critic has told lawyers he is in "great pain" and has trouble using one of his legs. Russian prison authorities have claimed Navalny's health is "satisfactory."
