Biden to Issue New Russia Sanctions over Nalvany Death Amid Widespread Accusations of Assasination

HeadlineFeb 21, 2024

The Biden administration said it is preparing “major sanctions” against Russia in response to the death of Alexei Navalny, which it has blamed on President Vladimir Putin. Meanwhile, in Russia, Navalny’s family is building pressure for Russian prison authorities to release the body of the deceased opposition leader. The X social media account of Navalny’s widow, Yulia Navalnaya, was temporarily suspended after she posted a video statement accusing Putin of killing Navalny and hiding his body to cover up the assassination. Navalnaya has vowed to take over from her husband and lead the opposition movement.
