LUXEMBOURG: The European Union has agreed to move ahead with sanctions against Russia over the chemical weapon poisoning of opposition leader Alexei Navalny.               

The understanding came at a meeting of EU Foreign ministers in Luxembourg.   

The push for sanctions came after the UN chemical weapons watchdog confirmed a finding by Germany, France and Sweden that Russia had poisoned its opposition leader Navalny by a nerve agent called Novichok which is against international law and the chemical weapons convention.
