The statement of US President Joe Biden to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin is unacceptable for the head of state, the Russian leader gave a decent answer, Turkish leader Tayyip Erdogan said.
“This is not a statement that you can accept and swallow. Such a statement does not suit the head of state. He (Putin) is very smart and gave a splendid answer,” Erdogan told reporters when asked about Biden’s words.
Earlier, Biden, when asked by the media whether he considers his Russian counterpart a “killer,” replied that he did. He also noted that Putin will “answer” for alleged interference in the American elections. In response to the proposal of the President of the Russian Federation to talk, the White House said that Biden and Putin had already talked and that the United States was in contact with the Russian leadership.
Putin, commenting on Biden’s statement, wished him good health. He noted that this is not just a joke, but an expression with meaning. According to him, in the history of every nation and every state there are many difficult, dramatic and bloody events, and “when we evaluate other people, or when we evaluate even other states, other peoples, we always seem to look as if in a mirror,” “we always there we see ourselves “,” we always shift onto another person what we ourselves breathe, what we are in essence “.
