“They will answer for what they did to our country and to my husband” — Yulia Navalnaya on news of Alexei Navalny’s death

Yulia Navalnaya has said that Russian president Vladimir Putin and his regime are responsible for everything that has happened to the country, her family, and her husband. “The day of reckoning will come very soon,” Navalnaya declared, speaking from the podium at the Munich Security Conference following news about the death of her husband.

“I don’t know if we can believe this horrific news that we are getting only from Russia’s government sources. We haven’t been able to trust Putin or Putin’s government in years. All they do is lie.
But if it is indeed true, I want Putin and his entourage to know that they will be held responsible for everything they have done to our country and to my family. The day of reckoning will come very soon.
I want to call on the international community and the people of the world to unite and overcome this evil.”

Russia’s Federal Penitentiary Service in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug reported Alexei Navalny’s death in the afternoon of February 16. Immediately after the news became public, the Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov reported that the information had been relayed to Vladimir Putin. The 112 Telegram channel and the propagandist television network RT claim that the ambulance crew that was called on to attend to the opposition leader spent half an hour trying to resuscitate Navalny before declaring him dead due to a detached blood clot.

Meanwhile, Alexander Polupan, a practicing emergency room doctor who was part of the team that resuscitated Navalny after he was poisoned with the nerve agent Novichok by a group of FSB agents, points out that diagnosing pulmonary embolism (the medical term for Navalny’s pronounced cause of death) on the spot would have been impossible. He noted that the fact of this diagnosis appearing so quickly and being circulated by propaganda outlets so eagerly “raises questions.”
