Western countries call on Interpol to suspend Russia

UK Home Secretary Priti Patels says the UK and Western allies have called to suspend Russia from the Interpol international law enforcement organization.

Patel says she made the request to Interpol with counterparts from the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

The diplomats call for the “immediate suspension of Russia’s access to its systems.”

“Russia’s actions are a direct threat to the safety of individuals and to international law enforcement cooperation,” she says.

Interpol says it connects 195 member countries.
