Alexei Navalny, an opposition leader serving a prison sentence in Russia and a staunch opponent of President Vladimir Putin, has died suddenly.

Joe Biden's statement

In his statement, Biden said, 'You know, like millions of people around the world, I am not really surprised by the news of Alexei Navalny's alleged death, but rather outraged. He stood up and fought bravely against corruption, violence and all the other bad things being done by the Putin government. In response, Putin arrested him and poisoned him. He was prosecuted for forgery. He was kept in isolation. But even in prison, Alexey was a strong voice of truth.

There was an attempt to murder in 2020 also

Holding Putin responsible for Alexei Navalny's death, Biden said, 'If there had been an assassination attempt on him in 2020, he could have lived safely in exile if he wanted, because he was not even in his country at that time. . But he returned to Russia knowing that there he would be imprisoned or killed. But he still did it because he loved and believed in his country, Russia. If the news of his death is true, and I have no reason not to believe it, Russian officials are going to tell their own story. But make no mistake. Putin is responsible for Navalny's death.

There was an attempt to murder earlier too

Earlier, the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District administration had said in an official statement that Navalny was not in good health after being jailed on Friday. He said that he was not feeling well, after which he fainted. After this the medical staff was called, but he did not regain consciousness.

However, the cause of his death is not yet known. Rumors have also surfaced many times regarding Navali. Earlier in 2020, there were also reports of him being poisoned to death in Siberia. However, the Russian government rejected the attempt to assassinate him. The government said there was no evidence that he was poisoned with a nerve agent. After this, rumors also arose about his disappearance from jail.
