UN urges Russia to start impartial Navalny probe

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet called on Tuesday on Russian authorities to conduct a "thorough, transparent, independent and impartial investigation" into the poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny. She added that Navalny "was clearly someone who needed state protection."

"The number of cases of poisoning, or other forms of targeted assassination, of current or former Russian citizens, either within Russia itself or on foreign soil, over the past two decades is profoundly disturbing," Bachelet said. "And the failure in many cases to hold perpetrators accountable and provide justice for the victims or their families, is also deeply regrettable and hard to explain or justify."
