US warns Russia of ‘consequences’ if Alexei Navalny dies

The Biden administration says there will be “consequences” if jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny dies after a doctor for the 44-year-old said it could happen “any minute”.

“We have communicated to the Russian government that what happens to Mr Navalny in their custody is their responsibility and they will be held accountable by the international community,” National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan told CNN.

“In terms of the specific measures that we would take, we are looking at a variety of different costs that we would impose and I’m not going to telegraph that publicly at this point”.

“But we have communicated that there will be consequences if Mr Navalny dies.”
