“EThis death in a Russian prison and one man’s fixation and fear only underscore the weakness and corruption surrounding the regime that Putin has built. Russia is responsible for this situation,” Blinken declared on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference in Germany.

US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said earlier that “given the Russian government’s long and sordid tendency to destroy its opponents, there are obvious questions about what just happened.”

In an interview with NPR public radio, Sullivan added that Washington was trying to confirm the information before “deciding how to proceed.”

The European Union considered that the Russian regime is “solely responsible for the tragic death” of the Russian opponent.

Navalny died today, aged 47, in a penal colony in the Arctic, where he had been transferred in December, after being in a prison in the Vladimir region, less than 200 kilometers from Moscow.

The news was released by Russia’s prison services. Navalny’s supporters have not yet confirmed the dissident’s death.

Navalny’s multiple trials were widely denounced as political and a way to punish him for opposing Vladimir Putin.

Russian authorities have provided virtually no details about the conditions of Navalny’s death, limiting themselves to a concise statement.

They said they had done everything in their power to revive the opponent, who was in poor health after collapsing while walking.
