Britain sanctions Russians accused of poisoning Navalny

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain said on Thursday it would enforce asset freezes and travel bans on six individuals accused of involvement in the poisoning of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, replicating sanctions being applied by the European Union.

Those being sanctioned include Aleksandr Vasilievich Bortnikov, chief of Russia’s Federal Security Service.
