Biden’s aide threatened Russia with consequences if Navalny dies in prison
The US presidential administration is considering several measures to hold Russia accountable if the politician Alexei Navalny dies in the colony. This was announced on the air of CNN by Joe Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan.
“We told the Russian side that it is responsible for what happens to Navalny in custody. They will be held accountable by the international community, – said the assistant to the US president. “As far as concrete measures are concerned, we are looking at many ways to make them pay. Until I publicly talk about them. But we warned that there will be consequences if Navalny dies. “
Alexei Navalny, who is serving a sentence in the Yves Rocher case at the Pokrov correctional colony, went on a hunger strike on March 31 – he complains of pain in his back and legs and demands that independent doctors be allowed to see him. The Federal Penitentiary Service claims that they provide the politician with all the necessary assistance. Navalny’s attending physicians speak of “sharply negative” dynamics of his test data, which can lead to renal failure and severe pathologies of the cardiovascular system.
In March 2021, the Biden administration introduced the first package of sanctions against people and institutions that, according to the United States, are responsible for the poisoning of Alexei Navalny with Novichok poison and the subsequent criminal prosecution of the politician. A month later , new US sanctions followed – due to an alleged hacker attack on the servers of American government organizations and interference in the presidential election.
