His chemistry with former President Donald Trump was good. But did Russian President Vladimir Putin think that Moscow-Washington relations would collapse so soon after the reorganization of the White House? In a television interview yesterday, the new president of the United States, Joe Biden, called him a “murderer” and today Putin retaliated by saying: “Only a murderer can identify another murderer!”
An interview with President Biden was broadcast on a TV channel on Wednesday night. There, Alexei Navalny, Russia’s opposition leader, was poisoned and asked Biden “What do you think of Putin?” Do you think he is a murderer? ” Without blinking Biden replied, Hmmm, I think so.
Today, Moscow reacted strongly to Biden’s comments. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peshkov said in a threatening tone, “It just came to our notice then. President Biden’s comments were very offensive and it was clear that he was not interested in improving relations with us. We will walk that path this time as well.”
Later, at a press conference, Putin also opened his mouth about it. “I know him personally,” he said. I’ll just say this, stay healthy. No, I really wish you a long life and a healthy body. ”
However, the Russian president did not stop there. “When we try to judge a person or a state, we are actually in front of a mirror. When I was a child, one thing was very common among our friends. Whenever we called someone by a bad name, we said In fact, it is you. But this is not childish. We think of ourselves and others. Only a murderer can recognize another murderer! “
