US senators asked Trump to intervene in the situation with Navalny
The head of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Jim Rish (Republican, Idaho), and Committee spokesman Bob Menendez (Democrat, New Jersey) asked President Donald Trump to examine what had happened to Russian opposition activist Alexey Navalny.
In a letter to the head of the White House, lawmakers expressed concern that the politician вЂњwas poisoned in August 2020 with a chemical nerve agent from the вЂњBeginnerвЂќ family. Senate members asked Trump to consider whether the Russian government had used chemical or biological weapons in violation of international law against its own citizen and whether sanctions should be imposed under Section 306 of the 1991 Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Prohibition Act.
Recall that Navalny felt bad on August 20 during a flight from Tomsk to Moscow. The plane landed in Omsk airport on an emergency basis. The politician was taken in a coma to the intensive care unit of the Omsk hospital, then he was sent to the Charite clinic in Berlin for treatment.
