MarketWatch – European Union foreign ministers have agreed this week to impose new sanctions against Russian officials linked to the jailing of opposition leader Alexei Navalny and expressed concern that the government in Moscow appears to see the 27-nation bloc as an adversary.

Navalny, 44, an anti-corruption investigator and Putin’s most prominent critic, was arrested in Moscow last month upon returning from Germany, where he spent five months recovering from a nerve-agent poisoning that he blames on the Kremlin. Russian authorities have rejected the accusation.
