Clinton lobbied to swap Navalny with Krasikov

The exchange of the Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny with the alleged employee of the Russian special services, Vadim Krasikov, who was sentenced to life imprisonment in Germany for the murder of the former Chechen field commander Zelimkhan Khangoshvili, was lobbied by the former head of the US State Department, Hillary Clinton. The Wall Street Journal writes about it, referring to its sources.

According to the WSJ, investigative journalist Hristo Grozev asked Hillary Clinton to participate in the Navalny exchange negotiations. Alexei Navalny's wife unofficially appealed to the German authorities to approve the exchange.
