Biden meets with Navalny family

AKIPRESS.COM - President Joe Biden met Thursday with the wife and daughter of the late Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny, the White House said, as the president prepares to levy additional sanctions against Russia, CNN reported.

After the meeting, Biden said Russian President Vladimir Putin himself will be sanctioned.

"I had the honor of meeting with his wife and daughter and, to state the obvious, he was a man of incredible courage," Biden told reporters of Navalny. "We’re gonna be announcing sanctions against Putin, who is responsible for his death, tomorrow."

Biden said it was clear from the meeting that Navalny’s wife would "continue to fight."

"We’re not letting up," he said.

The meeting occurred in California, where Biden is traveling for political fundraisers. Dasha Navalnaya, Navalny’s daughter, is a student at Stanford University.
