Germany says EU could sanction Russians who make nerve agents

BERLIN (Reuters) - The European Union could quickly sanction people in Russia who are involved in developing nerve agents like that used to poison Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Wednesday.

“It would be possible to sanction very quickly individuals who, for example, are known to be involved in the development of chemical warfare agents - and that is a discussion we will have in the European Union in the coming days,” Maas told German lawmakers.
