High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell told MEPs Tuesday he would propose a list of Russian names to blacklist over the jailing of opposition figure Alexei Navalny, APA reports citing AFP.

"I will put forward concrete proposals using the right of initiative that the high representative [for foreign affairs] has," Borrell said, referring to new EU human rights sanctions.

He indicated it would be by the next EU foreign ministers' meeting on 22 February.
