Russian dictator Vladimir Putin and his circle will be held accountable if the information about the death of Alexei Navalny is confirmed, says Yulia Navalnaya during her speech at the Munich Security Conference.

As Navalny's wife notes, she does not know whether she can trust Russian state sources regarding her husband's death, as Putin and his circle always lie.

"But if this is true, I want Putin, all his entourage, and the Putin government to know that they will be punished for what they have done to our country, to my family, and my husband. And this day will come very soon," Navalnaya says, calling on the international community to unite and defeat "the evil, terrible regime that is currently in Russia."
