With Russia-U.S. relations at a historic low and ahead of the upcoming summit of the leaders of two countries in Geneva next week, Russian President Vladimir Putin called U.S. President Joe Biden a career politician in an interview with NBC before expressing hope that there will not be any impulse-based movements.
Comparing President Biden with his predecessor Donald Trump, Putin said the current White House occupant is radically different from Trump because Biden is a career man that has spent his entire adulthood in politics.
One of the topics discussed was a notorious interview Biden gave with ABC in March, which caused a public outcry with U.S. president saying that Moscow would have to pay a price for the alleged meddling in U.S. elections and agreeing when asked if Putin was a killer.
Yet, Putin noted that he is not worried about Biden’s scandalous remarks, saying that he was always guided by the interests of Russian people and Russian state and that labels of any kind doesn’t worry him at all.
Such labels, according to Putin, has become normal for U.S. political culture, probably under Hollywood’s influence, but this does not seem normal in Russia.
