Foreign ministers of the G-7 nations issued a joint statement on Tuesday condemning what they called “the confirmed poisoning” of Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny.

The statement said Germany, where Mr. Navalny was treated in a Berlin hospital, has concluded that he was “the victim of an attack with a chemical nerve-agent of the ‘Novichok’ group, a substance developed by Russia.” It called on Russia to investigate who is responsible, “bearing in mind Russia’s commitments under the Chemical Weapons Convention.”
