Russian Foreign Minister Says Kremlin Is Monitoring 'Persecution' of U.S. Capitol Rioters [View all]

Ahead of a mid-June meeting in Geneva with Vladimir Putin, President Joe Biden said on Sunday he’ll bring up the issue of human rights with the Russian president. “I’ll be meeting with President Putin in a couple of weeks in Geneva,” Biden said during a speech marking Memorial Day, “Making it clear that we will not — we will not stand by and let him abuse those rights.”

On Monday, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov responded by saying Russia is prepared to discuss the matter. “Of course, we will be ready to discuss everything, including problems that exist in the United States,” said Lavrov.

Lavrov stated that the Kremlin is monitoring what he called the “persecution” of the rioters who stormed the Capitol on January 6 in an effort to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. He stated that Russia was interested in the “protection of opposition rights” in the U.S.

Russia’s most notable opposition leader, Alexei Navalny, was jailed in January upon his return to Russia from Germany, where he had been recovering from a nerve agent attack he says was ordered by Putin. He was jailed for violating the terms of a 2014 agreement stemming from a fraud charge. As part of that agreement, Navalny is supposed to regularly check in with Russian authorities, but he failed to do so last year because he was in hospital recovering from the attack. A lawyer for Navalny noted he had been in a coma for part of that time.
