Britain’s foreign Minister Dominic Raab said he had summoned Russia’s ambassador to the UK to express his concern at the poisoning of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, APA reports citing Reuters. 

“Today the UK summoned Russia’s Ambassador to the UK to register deep concern about the poisoning of Alexey @navalny,” Raab said on Twitter.
