In a statement released by the speaker on Tuesday, over the new sanctions issued by President Biden’s administration on Russia in response to the attempted murder of opposition leader, Alexei Navalny.

Pelosi said, “For years, Russia has accelerated a deadly campaign to jeopardize international security, erode human rights and undermine democracy, both within its borders and around the world.  

“The attempted murder of anti-corruption activist Alexei Navalny is a profound violation of human rights that demonstrates Moscow’s utter determination to silence the voices of reform”, she said.

She noted that United States is working in close coordination with other allies, while continue to hold Moscow accountable for its transgressions, from its attacks on sovereign nations.

“And to its interference in foreign elections, targeting of democracy activists and dissidents. Under the leadership of the Biden Administration, we will put an end to Russia’s assault on our security and our values”, she said.
