U.S. Senators Overwhelmingly Condemn Putin For Navalny’s Death | Eastern North Carolina Now

    U.S. Senators stood in solidarity on Friday in condemning Russian President Vladimir Putin for the death of opposition leader Alexei Navalny in a remote Arctic prison.

    Navalny, a frequent critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was in prison after being convicted on charges of "extremism" and sentenced to 19 years. Russia's Federal Penitentiary Service said that Navalny felt sick after going on a walk, and soon after, lost consciousness and died.

    Senate Republican Conference Chairman John Barrasso (R-WY) posted on X: "Putin's regime is pure evil. Putin's cronies murdered Alexei Navalny for having the courage to stand up for freedom."

    "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," said Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Mark Warner (D-VA). "It's another reason why we must continue to stand with the cause of freedom in opposition to Putin's brutality."

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) wrote: "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."

    "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," said Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS). "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."

    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) posted on X: "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"

    Navalny had been sentenced to prison in 2021 after returning to Moscow from Germany, where he was undergoing treatment for poisoning from a nerve agent that was blamed on the Kremlin. The Kremlin has denied any responsibility for his poisoning, but United States intelligence officials have said they believe Russia was responsible.

    Navalny frequently faced criminal charges during his career in Russian politics, which he said were motivated because of his opposition to Putin. Navalny founded the Anti-Corruption Foundation, which was dissolved in Russia in 2021, to expose corruption by high-ranking Russian officials and challenge the United Russia Party's control over the country's political system.

    Other responses from U.S. Senators included:

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"
