The American leader condemned the Kremlin’s “attacks” on Navalny.
U.S. President Joseph Biden expressed his support for the thousands of people who came out today to protest in Russian cities against the arrest of opposition politician Alexei Navalny by condemning the regime of the current government. This was said in a message on the Twitter account of the U.S. government.
The message reads that the attacks on Navalny should be stopped because it is a gross violation of human rights, it is an insult to all Russian people, and people should have a right to speak out and their opinions should be heard and respected.
The report stressed that the Biden and Harris administrations support all those who stand up for democracy.
Earlier, members of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives expressed their concern about the Navalny case. They sent a letter to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov demanding that the “shameful” process be stopped and that the opposition leader be released.
Congress questioned the legitimacy of Alexei Navalny’s case, calling the trial against him “disgraceful. Even more unhappy was the detention of Navalny’s supporters, who were arrested after his arrival in Moscow only because they supported the opposition leader and openly voiced their position. Such behavior by the Kremlin is considered unacceptable in the United States.
