JOE BIDEN is set for a collision course with Vladimir Putin by imposing sanctions on Russia later today.
The US President is expected to punish Russia over the poisoning of Mr Putin’s rival Alexei Navalny, according to sources in Washington. The Russian opposition leader fell ill on board a domestic flight from Siberia to Moscow on August 20, 2020.
Two days later he was transferred to a hospital in Berlin for life-saving treatment and doctors concluded he had been poisoned with a nerve agent.
The Kremlin has always denied any involvement in the incident.
