White House Teases ‘Major Sanctions Package’ Against Russia In Response To Navalny’s Death | Eastern North Carolina Now

    The White House will unveil a "major sanctions package" against Russia on Friday in response to the death of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, according to President Joe Biden's national security team.

    John Kirby, a spokesman for the National Security Council, told reporters about the plan on Tuesday, noting that Russia's war in Ukraine is also a factor in the new round of penalties.

    "We will be announcing a major sanctions package on Friday of this week to hold Russia accountable for what happened to Mr. Navalny and quite frankly for all its actions over the course of this vicious and brutal war that has now raged on for two years," Kirby said.

    Russian authorities said last week that Navalny died at the age of 47 in an Arctic penal colony after he started to feel ill and lost consciousness. Biden delivered remarks on Friday in which he said Russian President Vladimir Putin was "responsible" for the death of Navalny, who supporters insist was imprisoned on trumped-up charges. Navalny's family is now engaged in a clash with Russia to secure the release of his body.

    Navalny's death happened after the Democrat-led Senate passed a roughly $95 billion foreign aid package that would dedicate another $60 million to Ukraine as it fights Russia. The GOP-controlled House has not taken up the bill, but the White House is pushing lawmakers to get it passed.

    "One of the most powerful things that we can do right now to stand up to [Russian leader] Vladimir Putin of course is to again pass the bipartisan national security supplemental bill and support Ukraine as they continue to fight bravely in defense of their country," Kirby said.


    House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) has criticized the foreign aid package for a dearth of border security policy changes. Biden told reporters on Monday that he would be open to meeting with Johnson to discuss the matter, after which the speaker's team said they looked forward to the White House communicating when the president will be available.

    Biden also rejected a reporter's question asking if he would go as far as to say Navalny's "blood is on the hands" of Republicans in the House, countering with, "I wouldn't use that term, but they're making a big mistake not responding."

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?"
