The death of Russian oppositionist Alexei Navalny is still a topic in the world. After this politician died in prison, rumors immediately emerged that Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, was the main culprit for his death. 

The fact that Navalny was poisoned in 2020 but managed to survive says a lot about everything. 

However, Putin dismissed such accusations and emphasized that Navalny simply died in prison. 

Reactions to his death followed immediately after it was confirmed that he had passed away. One of those who recently reacted is Donald Trump. He was asked by reporters a few days ago whether Putin was responsible for Navalny's death. Trump wasn't sure about it, but it seems he still believes that something suspicious exists in the whole case.

“I don’t know, but perhaps, I mean possibly, I could say probably. I don’t know. He’s a young man, so statistically he’d be alive for a long time. If you go by the insurance numbers, he’d be alive for another 40 years. So something happened that was unusual.”-Trump told Fox News host Howard Kurtz.

Trump believes that he is not someone who can confidently confirm whether Navalny was murdered, but certain things don't add up to him, and he believes that something bad happened.

I don’t know, you certainly can’t say for sure, but certainly that would look like something very bad happened, right?” -Trump continued.

Donald Trump has had a clear stance on the war in Ukraine and Russia for quite some time. He believes that if he were to be president again, the war in Ukraine would end. However, the interesting aspect is how Trump would achieve his goal. 

Namely, the potential new US president has no intention of assisting Ukraine and believes that this approach would end the war. 

He also emphasized that with his arrival, the war would end within 24 hours. 

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban stated that if Ukraine does not receive assistance, the war will be over. It seems that Trump has a detailed plan to end this war. 

Ukrainians are not satisfied with his views, especially Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who believes that Trump does not know Vladimir Putin well and is unaware of the details regarding this leader. Ukrainians are frustrated with the behavior of former US President Trump and believe that his policies can only lead to even greater conflicts.

Joe Biden reacts to Navalny's death

The current US president immediately reacted to the news of the death. Joe Biden believes that it is difficult to determine what happened, but he believes that Vladimir Putin and the leadership of Russia have their fingers involved in the whole case. Biden never had a lot of trust in Putin, considering the moves of the Russian leader, which are anything but positive.

"The answer is, I — we don’t know exactly what happened, but there is no doubt that the death of Navalny was a consequence of something that Putin and his — and his thugs did. "- Biden said.

Biden talked about how he warned Putin three years ago about serious consequences if Navalny died while in Russian custody. He mentioned that since then, Russia has faced a lot of problems, like losing many soldiers and getting hit with big penalties from other countries.  The sanctions Russia has faced are truly huge. Despite everything, Putin and his leadership managed to maintain the economy within the country. The question is, for how long?

US president said they're thinking about what else they could do. He pointed out that when he warned Putin, there weren't any actions taken against Russia yet, but a lot has happened since then.

Biden is ready to implement further sanctions together with other countries, all to stop Russia. From the first day of the war, US president has shown readiness to help Ukraine, aware of the potential consequences if Ukraine were to suffer defeat.

Vladimir Putin on Navalny's death

Vladimir Putin has been re-elected as the president of Russia, which can only lead to the continuation of conflicts. Many question the regularity of these elections and the way Putin regained power. However, at this moment, no one can do anything about it.

Vladimir Putin does not want to react to statements from foreign politicians about rigged elections and is ready to continue with his goals in the future.

During the press conference, he emphasized that Navalny's death was natural and that he was not killed as reported in foreign media.
