Responding to the latest developments on Alexei Navalny, Liberal Democrats Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Layla Moran said: “It is inexcusable that Alexei Navalny’s whereabouts are currently unknown. The Kremlin must provide clarity on this immediately to his lawyers.

“This comes on top of the already inexcusable arrest and detention of Alexei Navalny, and the shutting down of dissent in Russia from politicians and protestors. The UK should not stand for such human rights abuses and take further action.

“The Liberal Democrats continue to call on the Government to investigate implementing fresh Magnitsky sanctions, as the US has done in recent weeks, and assure us that anyone, no matter their wealth or status, will be considered.

“Britain should not be a safe haven for anyone aiding Alexei Navalny’s detention and mistreatment. The UK must show leadership, standing up for the rule of law and democracy, on the world stage.”
