EU Foreign Ministers Meet with Navalny's Widow Ahead of Ukraine War Anniversary
EU Foreign Ministers Meet with Navalny's Widow Ahead of Ukraine War Anniversary

Yulia Navalny, the widow of Alexei Navalny, a prominent critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin who recently died in prison, will be meeting with EU foreign ministers in Brussels. This meeting coincides with the approaching two-year anniversary of Russia's war on Ukraine.

Yulia Navalnaya, addressing a gathering in Munich, stated that Putin and his allies would be held accountable for their actions against her country, her family, and her late husband.

Josep Borrell, the EU's foreign policy chief, announced Navalnaya's visit and emphasized that the gathering would show support for freedom advocates in Russia and honor Alexei Navalny's memory.

Navalny, known for his anti-corruption activism in Russia, tragically passed away after falling ill at a penal colony. The EU ministers will discuss providing military aid to Ukraine and imposing additional sanctions on Moscow, marking the 13th round of EU sanctions since Russia's invasion of Ukraine in 2022.

Concerns within Europe persist regarding the potential return of former US President Donald Trump, who has shown skepticism towards NATO. Germany has opposed replenishing a military fund for Ukraine, while Hungary, with close ties to the Kremlin, has resisted endorsing new sanctions against Moscow.

Despite these challenges, EU diplomats are optimistic about reaching an agreement on new sanctions before February 24. Additionally, the ministers will address conflicts in Gaza and the Sahel region, where military coups have destabilized several countries.

The EU aims to coordinate its efforts with the United States and the United Kingdom in addressing these issues and providing support to affected regions.
