New article for FPC on Navalny and western policy

I’ve written an article for the Foreign Policy Centre on the Navalny protests in Russia and what they might mean for western policy. In short, I think that whilst the protests are extraordinary, and the treatment of Navalny by the Kremlin has been egregious, there is a risk to western policy makers putting sole emphasis on this one case to the exclusion of other issues. You can read the article here.

President Biden has said that he sees mutual self-interest in working with Russia despite the Navalny arrest.
