The Biden-Harris administration announces the main findings of an intelligence community assessment of Aleksei Navalny’s poisoning, as well as steps to hold Russia accountable for this action. The intelligence community believes with great confidence that agents of the Russian Federal Security Service used a nerve agent to poison Russian opposition leader Aleksei Navalny on August 20, 2020. The use of any chemical weapon directly violates obligations international legal and civilized standards of conduct. And our actions today fall into a number of categories and reflect a response from across government. Today the United States announces sanctions against seven top Russian government leaders, an extension of sanctions under the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Elimination of War Act, new restrictions on the export on items that could be used for the production of biological and chemical agents and visa. restrictions. We also reiterate our call on the Russian government to immediately and unconditionally release Mr. Navalny.
