Portuguese Foreign Ministry calls for immediate release of Russian rival

Portugal’s Foreign Ministry called for the immediate release of Russian rival Alexey Navalny on Monday, when he returned after being hospitalized in Germany after dealing with trying to eat poison for several months.

In a message posted on the social network Twitter, the ministry also states that “Alexei Navalny’s detention is a matter of great concern” and that “Portugal is closely monitoring the situation with European allies”.

The status of Portugal is already taken by many states, such as Germany, France, the United Kingdom or the United States, and many international organizations.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights demanded a “immediate release” of Navalny in a message on Twitter, saying he was “deeply troubled” by the situation.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen also condemned Navalny’s arrest, demanding his immediate release and guaranteeing that he would “closely monitor the situation”, underlining that “the arrest of political opponents against international commitments” Is “Russia”.
