Russia’s Investigative Committee informed the lawyers and the mother of Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny that his body has been sent for a "chemical examination," which will last for 14 days, reports Navalny’s press secretary Kira Yarmysh.

On February 19, Yulia Navalnaya, the widow of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, attended an EU Foreign Affairs Council meeting. Later, she met with European Council President Charles Michel and Belgian Foreign Minister Hadja Lahbib. Leonid Volkov and Maria Pevchikh, Navalny's associates in the Anti-Corruption Foundation and other projects, also participated in several meetings in Brussels.

Today, Yulia Navalnaya posted a video in which she accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of cowardly killing her husband and promised to continue Alexei's work. Within the first three hours after its publication, the video was viewed by 1.5 million people.
