Navalny’s novichok poisoning: Who can stand up to Russia?

Alexei Navalny is probably the most effective opposition that Vladimir Putin has ever had.

He’s been posting videos online documenting alleged Kremlin corruption with millions of viewers, he’s been arrested 13 times for organising anti-Putin protests and then he was poisoned with novichok.

Russia has denied the Kremlin was involved in the poisoning. But what can the international community do?

On the Sky News Daily Podcast, Dermot Murnaghan is joined by a friend of Mr Navalny, Dr Sergei Guriev, Sky’s Moscow correspondent Diana Magnay and chemical weapons expert Hamish De Bretton Gordon.
