"These are really bad remarks by the USA president". What would I answer him?
"In childhood, when we argued with each other, we said: 'He who calls names is called that himself.' This is no coincidence, this is not just a childish joke, it has a very deep psychological meaning".
"We need millions more to get vaccinated", Biden said, urging people to get the vaccine when it's their turn, and take other precautions to stop the spread. "There have been many hard, dramatic, and bloody events in the history of each nation".
He noted that Russian Federation would still cooperate with the United States where and when it supports Moscow's interests, adding that "a lot of honest and decent people in the U.S. want to have peace and friendship with Russian Federation".
"But we know how to defend our own interests, and we will work with them but in those areas in which we are interested and on terms we consider favorable for us".
As tensions between Washington and Moscow grow, the peace and justice movement is concerned that they might have triggered the start of a new Cold War, which "should never have happened", Hoffman says. He also invited the USA president to a live talk on Friday or Monday, but White House spokesperson Jen Psaki said she has nothing to report on a possible conversation between the two leaders and added that Biden was planning to be in Georgia on Friday.
"These statements from the president of the United States are very bad".
What Putin is suggesting is a discussion, not a debate, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov clarified on Friday.
In an interview with ABC News yesterday, when asked if he thought Putin, who has been accused of ordering the poisoning of opposition figure Alexei Navalny, is "a killer", Biden said: "I do".
During Biden's interview, the President also added that Russian Federation will "pay the price" for meddling in the 2020 elections, a move which a US intelligence report shows was created to undermine Biden's campaign.
The Russian president also said that if he saw Biden, he would wish him good health, "without irony".
"I want to propose to President Biden to continue our discussion, but on the condition that we do it basically live, as it's called".
Russia's Foreign Ministry said it was looking to prevent an "irreversible deterioration in relations" over President Biden's remarks.
At the same time, Putin noted that Russian Federation would still co-operate with the United States where and when it supports Moscow's interests, adding that "a lot of honest and decent people in the US want to have peace and friendship with Russian Federation".
Mr. Kosachev warned that Russian Federation would respond further, without specifying how, to Mr. Biden's comments "if explanations and apologies do not follow from the American side". "This kind of assessment is not allowed from the mouth of a statesman of such a rank". Biden's accusations, Kosachyov wrote in a Facebook statement, were "unacceptable in any circumstances".
