Russia Issues Alexei Navalny An Ultimatum: Return Now Or Face Prison

The Kremlin just upped the ante amid soaring tensions with Germany and the EU over the Alexei Navalny affair, on Monday giving the allegedly poisoned Russian dissident an ultimatum: return to Russia right away for face prison.

Reuters details that "Russia's prison service on Monday gave Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny a last minute ultimatum: Fly back from Germany at once and report at a Moscow office early on Tuesday morning, or be jailed if you return after that deadline."

Russian officials have repeatedly condemned Berlin's refusal to allow Russian investigators access to either any of the evidence or Navalny himself, following Germany's prior conclusion that Russian intelligence tried to assassinate him using Soviet-made Novichok nerve agent in August.
