Sanctions could be imposed on the Russian government if it fails to clarify the circumstances surrounding the poisoning of opposition figure Alexei Navalny in the next few days, Germany's Foreign Minister Heiko Maas wrote about this on his Twitter page.

"If Russia does not clarify what happened in the Navalny case and does not provide information, then targeted and proportional sanctions against the perpetrators from the Russian side will be inevitable," the message informs.

As it was reported earlier, Germany has denied Russia consular access to Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who is recovering from a poisoning.

Russia believes that hysteria around the situation with Navalny is being artificially inflated. The Russian Foreign Ministry reacted to the debates in the Bundestag, during which the situation with Navalny was discussed. The Russian side calls the statements of German MPs that the Russian Federation is not ready for dialogue with Germany to be a lie.

The Russian Foreign Ministry also claims that Berlin continues to ignore cooperation with Moscow on the poisoning of Navalny.
