Navalny’s Death Exposes Putin’s Brutality: VP Harris

LONDON (IANS) – Vladimir Putin’s most significant opposition leader for the past decade, Alexei Navalny, has died in prison inside the Russian Arctic Circle.

Seen as President Vladimir Putin’s most vociferous critic, Navalny was serving a 19-year jail term for offenses that were politically motivated. He was moved to an Arctic penal colony, considered one of the toughest jails, late last year, BBC reported.

The prison service in the Yamalo-Nenets district said he had “felt unwell” after a walk and that he had collapsed.

Vice President Kamala Harris blamed the Kremlin for the death. “Whatever story they tell, let us be clear, Russia is responsible,” Harris said during a speech at the Munich Security Conference, adding the Biden administration would have more to say about its response soon. Harris said it was, “a further sign of Putin’s brutality.”

Politico reported that the timing was suspect and that officials in Europe were speculating if Putin had timed the death to the security conference for maximum effect.

  • I have always criticized Putin for being a bully and invading a sovereign country like Ukraine without any provocation. It’s just not done in this day and age. However, the US being a world leader has to be responsible about the statements made by its leaders, like Biden and Harris, therefore, I fail to see what Harris accomplished by making the following statement against Putin unless the U.S. has evidence to back it up through independent investigations of its own, especially, in light of the fact that the Ukraine war needs to end at some point, which would require some cooperation from Putin.

    “Vice President Kamala Harris blamed the Kremlin for the death. “Whatever story they tell, let us be clear, Russia is responsible,” Harris said during a speech at the Munich Security Conference, adding the Biden administration would have more to say about its response soon.

    I don’t disagree with her statement; it’s just the irresponsible way in which it was made, which makes US look bad.
