Germany and France prepared a list of targets as Europe takes the next steps in its plans to retaliate against Vladimir Putin’s government over the poisoning of Russia’s top opposition leader.

The proposed sanctions will target individuals deemed responsible for the attack as well as an entity involved in the nerve agent that was used on Alexey Navalny, the foreign ministers of the two countries said Wednesday. The joint statement didn’t elaborate on the plans.
