Great Britain today imposed sanctions on six people who held leadership positions in the Arctic penal colony where Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny died last week.

"Among those sanctioned is the head of the penal colony, as well as five of his deputies. They have been banned from entering Great Britain and their assets have been frozen," said British Foreign Minister David Cameron.

"It is clear that the Russian authorities saw Navalny as a threat and repeatedly tried to silence him," Cameron said. "Those who are guilty of the harsh treatment of Navalny should not be fooled – we will hold them accountable," Cameron said.
