Kremlin reacts to Biden’s insults directed at Putin

Most Popular

The Russian president’s spokesman says the US leader’s remarks were probably due to fatigue.

The Kremlin sees recent aggressive statements made by US President Joe Biden about his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin as “a personal insult” caused by Biden’s fatigue and irritability. It has refused to respond to the rhetoric.

“We do hear statements that are in fact personal insults to President Putin. These statements are actually coming from the president of the United States of America on a daily basis,” Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said in response to a journalist’s question on Friday.

“Considering such irritability from Mr. Biden, his fatigue, sometimes forgetfulness, which leads to aggressive statements, we will not give sharp assessments so as not to cause more aggression,” he concluded. Peskov added that being a thoughtful and wise leader, Vladimir Putin never responds to personal insults.

On Thursday, speaking at the annual lunch dedicated to Ireland’s St. Patrick’s Day, President Biden referred to the Russian head of state as a “murderous dictator” and “a pure thug,” accusing him of waging an immoral war against the people of Ukraine. Just a day earlier, the American leader called President Putin a “war criminal” in response to a journalist’s question.

The escalation in rhetoric comes as Washington takes a firm stance condemning Russia’s military action in Ukraine. On Wednesday, following a video address to the US Congress by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Biden allocated an additional sum of $800 million in security assistance to Kiev. The money will allow the Ukrainians to buy hundreds of America’s so-called Switchblade kamikaze drones and Stinger anti-aircraft systems.

The United States, together with its EU allies, is also continuing to impose sanctions on Moscow, targeting Russia’s banking and energy sectors, as well as the country’s top officials. Washington and Brussels, however, have refused Kiev’s demands to impose a no-fly zone over Ukraine, arguing it would lead to a full-scale Russia-NATO war.

Moscow attacked its neighbor in late February, following a seven-year standoff over Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements, and Russia’s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics in Donetsk and Lugansk. The German- and French-brokered protocols had been designed to regularize the status of those regions within the Ukrainian state.

Russia has now demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join the US-led NATO military bloc. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked and has denied claims it was planning to retake the two republics by force.

  1. Tony Blair is the fitting example for a war criminal. Lied to the British public and brought suffering to millions along with Bush. The hypocracy is beyond belief when Tony, the criminal was made Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter by the Queen.

    Biden lied about his sons laptop and continue to lie. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/03/16/us/politics/hunter-biden-tax-bill-investigation.html Biden is just a puppet of the deep state. I will not be surprised he steps down some time this year when the deep state gets into further trouble.

  2. Biden is an incompetent leader and a liar. Obama started the culture wars and Biden is just carrying on where Obama left off. America has caused the most problems in this world. Been going on for decades. Poking their nose into other countries affairs and causing rifts through propaganda. Egotistical, narcissists that need to be locked away permanently. Putin refuses to sign with the UN etc and America paint him as the bad guy. He is smarter, not a pushover and cares very much for his country. He will win eventually – he has God on his side. Bush, Obama, Clinton, Biden to name a few have destroyed people’s lives. They are genocidal maniacs.
