E.U. foreign policy chief Josep Borrel said Monday that the E.U. plans to rename its human rights sanctions regime after Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny, who died in an Arctic prison colony last week after years of abuse.

He also said he expects E.U. member states to pass new sanctions against the individuals responsible for the Navalny’s mistreatment.

Borrel and the E.U.’s foreign ministers will meet with Navalny’s widow, Yulia Navalnaya, on Monday.
