Biden Meets with Navalny’s Family in California, Vows Significant Sanctions Against Putin

MOSCOW, RUSSIA - FEBRUARY 24: Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny takes part in a march at Strastnoy Boulevard in memory of Russian politician and opposition leader Boris Nemtsov on his 4th death anniversary in Moscow, Russia on February 24, 2019.

President Joe Biden met with Alexei Navalny’s widow and daughter in California, expressing strong determination to impose significant new sanctions against Vladimir Putin and the Russian regime.

The president had a private conversation with Yulia and Dasha Navalnaya in a suite at the Fairmont hotel in San Francisco.

White House officials expressed their sympathies for the passing of Putin’s top critic and opposition leader in a Siberian penal colony last week.

Amid escalating tensions with Moscow, Biden embraced Yulia and assured her that her late husband’s legacy would endure.

The meeting occurred shortly after Biden publicly referred to Putin as a ‘crazy S.O.B.’ following Navalny’s passing at the age of 47. 

Following the meeting, Biden briefly addressed the press in the hotel garage as he entered his vehicle.

The president praised Navalny for his remarkable bravery. It’s impressive how his wife and daughter are imitating that.

We will be announcing the sanctions against Putin, who is accountable for his death, tomorrow.

Yulia emphasized her determination to keep fighting. We’re not backing down.

He criticized his predecessor Donald Trump for equating his legal troubles with Navalny’s situation.
