In a meeting with the ABC channel broadcast Wednesday, the United States president claimed that Vladimir Putin “will soon pay the price” for his actions. Punitive, Moscow remembered its ambassador to the United States “for consultations”.
Brand-new phase in the damage of connections between the USA and Russia. In an interview broadcast Wednesday, March 17, Joe Biden claimed he believed his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin was “a killer”, and also guaranteed he would certainly pay “the price”, promptly triggering outrage in Moscow.
He did not claim whether he was considering the poisoning of Russian opponent Alexei Navalny in August, blamed by the United States on Russia. The challenger was locked up on his go back to Russia after five months of retrieval in Germany, and also Washington is requiring his release.
President Joe Biden says he believes Russian leader Vladimir Putin is a killer with no soul — and vowed that Putin soon “will pay a price” for interfering in the 2020 U.S. election and trying to boost the reelection chances of then-President Donald Trump.
Biden said he warned Putin last month, in his first call to the Russian president after taking office, that he would retaliate if that meddling was confirmed.
“The conversation started off, ‘I said, I know you and you know me. If I establish this occurred, then be prepared,’” Biden told ABC News in an interview that aired Wednesday on “Good Morning America.”Source
Is President Biden’s assertive steadfastness just a communication exercise? Or indeed the will to want to differentiate itself from its predecessor?
In any case, Russia has already reacted to this position taken by President Biden. The diplomatic divorce is underway and we will see what the future holds.
