Russia has not done enough to find out who was behind the poisoning of opposition politician Alexei Navalny in 2020.
The lack of investigation constitutes a decisive breach of the European Convention on Human Rights.
This is stated by the European Court of Human Rights in a judgment handed down on Tuesday. This is written by the AFP news agency.
According to the court, Russia refused to launch a police investigation after Navalny became seriously ill and showed signs of poisoning.
Russia failed to “investigate the allegations of a possible political motive behind the assassination attempt and the possible involvement of state agents,” according to the judgment of the human rights court.
When the prominent critic of the regime in Russia was brought to a hospital in Germany for treatment, it was clear that he had been poisoned.
After the poisoning, Navalny was in a coma and was put on a ventilator. He later recovered and returned to Russia.
On his return in January 2021, he was arrested. Since then, he has been incarcerated in a penal colony, where, among other things, he is serving a sentence for alleged fraud.
