The US will introduce large-scale new sanctions against Russia due to the death of Navalny

The United States of America will announce a major package of sanctions against Russia on February 23 in connection with the death of opposition leader Alexei Navalny and the two-year war in Ukraine, reports Reuters.


US President Joe Biden stated this while talking to reporters during a trip to California.

According to White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, the upcoming sanctions against the Russian Federation will be aimed at a number of objects, including the country's defense and industrial bases, as well as sources of income for the economy. The package “will hold Russia accountable for what happened to Navalny” and for its actions during the war in Ukraine, White House national security spokesman John Kirby said.

A senior US official stressed that a package of sanctions is already being planned for the second anniversary of the full-scale war, which Washington will now review and supplement in response to Navalny’s death.

Brian Nelson, who oversees financial intelligence and counterterrorism at the Treasury Department, discussed sanctions over Navalny's death during a trip to Europe this week, two sources familiar with the matter said.

Nelson, during visits to Germany, Belgium and France ahead of the second anniversary of the full-scale war in Ukraine, among other things, discusses Washington's authority to target those who finance Russia's military production efforts (even if these people are in third countries).

The United States has already imposed a wide range of sanctions related to Russia's invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, including against Russian President Vladimir Putin, officials and banks.

Washington previously imposed sanctions over Navalny's poisoning and imprisonment in 2020, including against people linked to Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) and other officials.

Politician Alexei Navalny died on February 16 in correctional colony No. 3 in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Russia.

Speaking to reporters on a conference call, Kirby said the United States is demanding "full transparency" from Russia about how Navalny died.

"Whatever story the Russian government decides to tell the world, it is clear that President Putin and his government are responsible for Navalny's death," Kirby said.

The US Embassy in Moscow has requested additional information about Navalny's death.
