Senators Condemn Putin For Navalny's Death

 February 17, 2024

When it comes to the death of Alexei Navalny, many American Senators are blaming one man.

It's not hard to guess who.

You'll only need one try to figure it out:

Vladimir Putin.

The reason why is rather simple: Navalny was the leader of Putin opposition.

Navalny had been a frequent critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and was in prison because he had been convicted on charges of "extremism" and sentenced to NINETEEN YEARS in prison.

Anyone who thought that Navalny was going to live through his entire sentence is not familiar with the way Vladimir Putin operates.

The Russian government's explanation for Navalny's sudden death was that "Navalny felt sick after going on a walk, and soon after, lost consciousness and died."

Senate Republican Conference Chairman John Barrasso, a Republican from Wyoming, was one of the first to come out and blame the Russian President:

"Putin’s regime is pure evil. Putin’s cronies murdered Alexei Navalny for having the courage to stand up for freedom."

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Mark Warner, a Democrat from Virginia, agreed:

"The death of Alexei Navalny is yet another heartbreaking reminder of who Vladimir Putin is: a bloodthirsty tyrant who thinks he can get away with anything. It’s another reason why we must continue to stand with the cause of freedom in opposition to Putin’s brutality."

Senator Tom Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas, also chimed in:

"Alexei Navalny died as he lived: a champion of the Russian people and a brave voice of dissent in Vladimir Putin’s Russia. President Biden pledged ‘devastating’ consequences should Navalny die in prison; now he must follow through. America can’t afford another erased red line."

Senator Roger Wicker, a Republican from Missouri, said something similar:

"Putin is a bully and attempting to send a chilling effect to his opponents and the world. His aggression stems from a simple fact: he is paranoid and a coward. This announcement comes as world leaders are convening today to discuss how to confront Russia. Putin has proven he will stop at nothing to silence opposition voices. We will not be deterred from our commitments and if anything, this murderous regime strengthens our resolve. We will not stop calling for the release of Vladimir Kara-Murza and others still falsely imprisoned."

Senator Chuck Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, posted his thoughts on social media:

"I urge all elected officials/political leaders to denounce Putin’s killing of a political foe. It’s contrary to what America stands for FREEDOM we ought to be unified against Putin & his cronies"
