"There Will Be Consequences If Navalny Dies"

U.S. National Security advisor Jake Sullivan said on Sunday that “there will be consequences” if Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny dies while imprisoned in Russia.

Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” host Dana Bash asked Sullivan what action the U.S. would take if Navalny dies, noting that representatives for Navalny have said he is near death.

“Well, first, we joined with the European Union and many other like-minded democracies around the world to impose sanctions for what the Russian government has done to Navalny, for the use of a chemical weapon against him, which is in contravention of international laws,” Sullivan said.
