    U.S. is preparing sanctions over Navalny’s death

    The Biden administration is preparing “major sanctions” against Russia over the death of the Russian opposition leader Aleksei Navalny, a White House official said yesterday.

    The official said details of the penalties would be announced on Friday.

    Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022, the Biden administration has announced a series of sanctions that the U.S. hoped would hobble Russia economically and militarily. But in spite of the moves, the I.M.F. said last month that Russia’s economy was growing faster than expected.

    Related: Yulia Navalnaya, Navalny’s widow, who has taken up his cause, started an account on X that was briefly suspended yesterday.

    Other reactions: Donald Trump compared himself to Navalny while discussing his own legal woes at a Fox News town hall.
