White House Responds to Poisoning of Putin Critic

The White House has responded to the poisoning of Putin critic Alexei Navalny.

According to The Hill:

The White House on Wednesday condemned the poisoning of a prominent critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin with the use of a chemical agent.


A spokesman for the National Security Council called the findings that nerve agent Novichok was used against Alexei Navalny “completely reprehensible.” Navalny fell ill last month and is being treated at a Berlin hospital.

“The United States is deeply troubled by the results released today. Alexei Navalny’s poisoning is completely reprehensible,” spokesman John Ullyot said in a statement. “Russia has used the chemical nerve agent Novichok in the past.”

The U.S. will “work with allies and the international community to hold those in Russia accountable, wherever the evidence leads, and restrict funds for their malign activities,” Ullyot said, adding that the Russian people should be able to express their views without fear of retribution.

Angela Merkel and Boris Johnson also condemned the attack.

I dont really care what Russia does to it’s people. As that is not my business if people in Russia dont like it they need to change the government. US tells Russia not to get in our business (elections) but we want to get in there’s? Both need to run there own country. Cuba US did not like but what was done NOTHING. I know I was there
