Alexey Navalny calls for this
Opposition members of the British parliament called on the government to impose sanctions against Russian businessmen Roman Abramovich and Alisher Usmanov. Russian oppositionist Alexei Navalny spoke about them last week, writes The Telegraph.
According to him, imposing sanctions is the only way to induce Russia to end human rights violations and defeat corruption. The owner of the Chelsea football club, Roman Abramovich, and the former shareholder of London Arsenal, Alisher Usmanov, have always emphasized that they are doing legal business and can confirm the source of income.
Labor Party spokesman Margaret Hodge and Liberal Democrat Leila Moran addressed the government during a parliamentary meeting. “The best way to show our support for Alexei Navalny is not to speak, but to act, not to investigate, but to take action. Alexey spoke about Abramovich and Usmanov, as they are wealthy and have connections with English football clubs “… British Foreign Office spokeswoman Wendy Morton promised that the government will continue to work in the field of human rights protection in Russia.
