US finds Russia poisoned Navalny, joins EU in sanctions

 

The Biden administration imposed a raft of sanctions on Russian officials and entities in response to the poisoning and imprisonment of opposition leader Alexey Navalny.

The actions — taken in coordination with the European Union, which also unveiled sanctions — represent the first significant move against Moscow since Joe Biden became President.

The Treasury Department sanctioned seven senior Russian government officials: two of President Vladimir Putin's deputy chiefs of staff, two Russian defense ministers, the Russian prosecutor general, the director of the Federal Penitentiary Service and the head of Russia's security services, the FSB. In addition, the State Department sanctioned the FSB as an entity, a designation that department spokesperson Ned Price said "speaks to where we believe culpability lies."

    1. @Ramon Gonzalez There was no proof and if your claim was accurate the last thing the Russians would do is let him leave Russia, they had to approve it.

      If Putin wanted this guy dead, when he is in Russia, he’d be dead, end of story.

    2. @Zach Dillenger lol than where did the poison come from? It’s only made by the Russian government its like if I found a football and a flag next to a body

    3. ​@Ramon Gonzalez “Germany and guess what the lab results confirmed, Nalvany was POISONED with a poison ONLY generated in Russia” Lol I would be surprised if they said that this is a poison that was made in USA. This is all a show, and people are so stupid that they immediately believe all this. All your evidence, etc., just what you were told on TV

  1. So, we can sanction Russia for poisoning Navalny but not Saudi Arabia for chopping up Kashoggi?

    1. because in the middle east we’re basically fighting alongside the saudis against the russians. life’s complicated, it ain’t fair.

  2. The Russian Foreign Minister talking about “honest cooperation without secrets” is some gold level BS lol

    1. @a1geee hope you understand, the crimea BS is as credible as Irak having weapons of mass distruction and Juan guado being the president of Venezuelaz

    2. same as USA, its always US, Russia, China crap, with US being the worst in politics, at least u got a good president now, not a clown like Dump

    3. The United States government publicly identified Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia as the murderer of an American resident. Besides or instead of imposing sanctions on M.B.S., Biden appears ready to let the murderer walk. Follow the money, USA should have suspended arms sales to Saudi Arabia, but this is great for private and defense contractors, arms producers, weapon suppliers and of course the corrupt Politicians.

    1. @TONY You’re blaming Biden, but that was the same US response from Bush 43, Obama, Trump, and every US president and British PM since the Kingdom was discovered to have oil.

    2. @Every man That’s your own opinion, so why are you telling me? Liberal or conservatives you need to learn to stay on topic and drop the “whataboutism.” I’m sure you’re probably terrified of Russians, so other people aren’t deal with them.

    3. @Every man Reading comprehension is not one of your talents. You’re better at repeating short simple talking points from far-right media. “Critical thinking bad. Newsman bad. Old man who won election very bad. “

  3. Does our actions as a nation divided us or does it bring us together as a nation it is time for those who breaks the law to be held accountable for their actions

    1. I can’t believe the report wasn’t released earlier to protect Saudi interests. Shameful

  4. One thing to like about Lavrov: He is 100% reliable. Anytime you need a lie, Lavrov’s your man! Although, maybe you sense a hint of fatigue in his face after a lifetime of shame?

  5. they are doing it cause it gives them an opportunity to show the world they dont want putin on the world stage anymore !!!

  6. Why are we doing this !? when things Happen here, who gets involved !! i do not get this. sure poison someone is bad, but sanctions we have no authority there.
