    Biden ‘contemplating’ steps to punish Moscow as world leaders blame ‘monster’ Putin for Navalny’s death – By Tom Gillespie (Sky News) / Feb 17, 2024

    UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has described Mr Navalny as the “fiercest advocate for Russian democracy”, while French President Emmanuel Macron said his death shows the “weakness of the Kremlin and their fear of all opponents”.

    US President Joe Biden has said he is “contemplating” steps to punish Moscow after he blamed Vladimir Putin and his “thugs” for the death of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

    Mr Biden said he was “outraged” but “not surprised” by the death of the prominent Putin critic as he joined other world leaders in saying the Kremlin should be held accountable.

    UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak described Mr Navalny as the “fiercest advocate for Russian democracy”, while Canadian leader Justin Trudeau said his passing is a reminder of “exactly what a monster Putin is”.

    Mr Navalny had been serving a 19-year sentence on extremism charges in Russia’s Polar Wolf penal colony north of the Arctic Circle
