MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday that German accusations over the case of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny were “groundless”.

Germany says Navalny, who is being treated in a Berlin hospital, was poisoned in Siberia with a rare nerve agent, something Moscow disputes.
