‘Nobody can send a more vocal message to Kremlin’ over poisoning and arrest of Alexei Navalny
The former world chess champion and Russian opposition figure Garry Kasparov has called on Boris Johnson to impose economic sanctions on oligarchs close to Vladimir Putin in response to the poisoning and arrest of the Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny.
In an interview with the Guardian, Kasparov said the UK was uniquely placed to take action against Putin’s inner circle. He argued that the flow of money from Moscow into London had to cease. “It’s very simple. Stop talking and start acting,” he said.
