President Biden later met with reporters and said, “It was an honor to meet Navalny’s wife and daughter this morning. Tomorrow we will announce sanctions against Putin, who is responsible for Navalny’s death. “We don’t give up,” he said.

President Biden has been pouring out criticism towards President Putin since Navalny’s death.

In an emergency speech immediately after his death, he criticized Putin, saying, “Putin is responsible for Navalny’s death,” and on the 19th, he predicted additional sanctions against Russia. Also, at a political fund-raising event the day before, President Putin was described as a “crazy SOB.”
