Navalnaya accuses Putin of lies, theft, and murder

Putin faces criticism from Navalny's widow over allegations of murder


Exiled Kremlin critic, Yulia Navalnaya, launched scathing accusations against Vladimir Putin today, branding him as a ''liar, thief, murderer,'' just moments before the commencement of his fifth presidential inauguration, marking his return to the helm of Russia.

"Our country is governed by a liar, a thief, a murderer, but inevitably, this will come to an end," Navalnaya declared in a video posted on social media platforms.

"With him at the helm, our country will have neither peace, nor progress, nor freedom," she added, referring to the extensive assault launched by the Russian military against Ukraine. "This war is bloody and senseless, and no one wants it except Putin," asserted Yulia Navalnaya.

"His promises are not only empty, they are also deceptive. This has been going on for 25 years. It will be the same this time," she emphasized in the approximately six-minute-long video.

"During each of his terms, the situation worsens, and it is terrifying to imagine what will happen as long as Putin remains in power," added the widow of the late Alexei Navalny, citing among other grievances, the "hundreds of political prisoners in Russia enduring inhumane conditions."

"We must ensure that no one in the world believes Putin, neither in Russia nor beyond its borders," Navalnaya asserted.

On February 16, 2024, Yulia Navalny's husband, Alexei Navalny, a fierce critic of Vladimir Putin, died in the prison where he was held in the Arctic, under circumstances that remain unclear.

Yulia Navalnaya, her supporters, and foreign leaders accuse the Russian president of assassinating the opposition leader, who was serving a prison sentence for "extremism." The Kremlin denies the allegations.
