US preparing more sanctions on Russia over Navalny

United States National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan stated on Sunday that the country is preparing additional sanctions on Russia over the detention and alleged poisoning of Alexey Navalny.

Speaking to CNN, Sullivan said that sanctions will come once the US ensures the right people and entities are being targeted, and that the Biden administration also plans to impose sanctions on chemical weapons. Moreover, Sullivan asserted that the US showed all along that it isn't going to "pull its punches" when it comes to responding to Russia's "harmful activities."

During the summit between the two country's leaders earlier this week, US President Joe Biden stated that the consequences of Navalny dying would be "devastating for Russia."
