The Biden Administration is imposing sanctions on Kremlin officials after the conclusion of a U.S intelligence community’s assessment on opposition leader Alexei Navalny’s poisoning and imprisonment.

The Biden Administration is imposing sanctions on several Russian officials in response to the near-fatal poisoning and imprisonment of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny. The move indicates that President Biden will take a tough-stance approach against Russia and Putin, compared to former President Trump who had a friendly relationship with the Russian leader. 

“The tone and subject of our conversation with Russia and our conversations about Russia will be very different than what you saw in the previous administration,” Press Secretary Jen Psaki said.

These sanctions mirror ones imposed by the European Union and Britain in October as well as additional ones announced today. However, reviews of Russian actions and involvement are still ongoing. With the conclusion of those reviews, the White House has the right to impose additional restrictions to deter the Kremlin from silencing opposition, Press Secretary Jen Psaki said. 

The suppression of Navalny’s voice is only one of the Biden Administration’s issues with Russia as reports of bounties being put on the heads of US Soldiers, the alleged hacking of the 2020 election and the SolarWinds cyber attack are also being reviewed. However, amidst all of the tension, the leaders still plan to work together when necessary. 

“There are areas where we digress, there are areas where there’s a significant challenge, there are also areas where we are going to work with the Russians, as we would with most global partners when we need to take steps that are an interest of the United States,” Psaki said.
