Vladimir Putin responded to the Joe Biden’s claims. The day before, U.S. President replied to the journalist’s question, saying that his Russian counterpart is a “killer”.
“Who calls someone’s names, is called himself the same,” the Russian president replied with a childish proverb that is equivalent to: “I’m rubber and you’re glue! Bad names bounce off me and stick to you!”
He also wished good health for US President Joe Biden.
Thus, Putin highlighted the grotesqueness of Biden’s accusations, and that they no sense but only aim to provoke resonance in the media. There was no such precedent in the history of diplomatic relations between Russia and the United States.
“I will only say that these are very bad statements by the US President. He definitely does not want to improve relations with our country. And we will proceed from this point,” Kremlin’s Spokesman Peskov said.
We, although they think that we are the same as them, but we are different people. We have a different genetic, cultural and moral code. But we know how to defend our own interests. And we will work with them, but in those areas in which we ourselves are interested, and on those conditions that we consider beneficial for ourselves. They will have to reckon with this ”
After Biden’s interview, where he vowed Modcow to ‘pay’ for alleged meddling in the last U.S. elections, the Russian ambassador to the U.S. was called for consultations in Moscow. The Kremlin pointed out that he was not recalled from the U.S. Such a measure aims to demonstrate the possible consequences if Washington continues its destructive politics.
The recall of the Russian Ambassador from the United States for consultations was the only possible reaction to the words of President Joe Biden about Russia, such measures are very strong, after them there is only a break in diplomatic relations, according to the Deputy Speaker of the Russian Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev.
In his interview, Russian President explained the reason of misunderstanding between the two sides. He claimed that the Americans have to admit that the Russians are different from them. The basic problem is that the leadership of the United States is ready to cooperate with Moscow, but only in those spheres where Washington has its interests and only on its own terms.
“We, although they think that we are the same as they are, but we are different. We have a different genetic, cultural and moral code. But we know how to defend our own interests. And we will cooperate with them (Americans), but in those areas in which WE are interested, and on those conditions that we consider beneficial for ourselves. They will have to reckon with this ” Putin said.
The on-going diplomatic crisis in Washington-Moscow relations goes alongside with the regular muscle-flexing by NATO members near the Russian borders. The NATO instructors frequently visit Kiev and meet Ukrainian military authorities on the frontlines in Donbass, amid the regular reports of the UAF reinforcements in the region.
The largest NATO joint military drills Defender Europe 2021 kicked off in the areas close to Russian borders. The exercises will include trainings in the Black Sea, in the immediate vicinity of Crimea.
On March 18th, the Crimeans celebrate the 7th anniversary of reunification with Russia. In these years, the defence capabilities of the peninsula have been increased, as since 2014, NATO’s military presence in the Black Sea region has grown significantly. American ships, reconnaissance drones regularly approach the Russian borders. According to the Deputy Minister of Defence, the number of reconnaissance aircraft flights in the region increased by 40%, and near the Crimean Peninsula by 60%.
Ukraine and NATO countries scheduled eight major exercises near Crimea this year, according to Russian Deputy Minister of Defense, Andrei Kartapolov.
“In 2021, eight large joint exercises of the armed forces of Ukraine and NATO are planned in the region with the participation of 11 thousand foreign military personnel – Americans, Poles, Romanians and the British,” Kartapolov said to the Russian Federation Council.
The current crisis is a logical deterioration in the relations between Russia and the U.S. after Joe Biden came to power.
In the struggle for global dominance, globalist elites require more resources to promote their agenda. The obvious measures to take are the capturing of new markets and gaining control over new territories. As such Russia and the other post-Soviet states, with their vast territories, which are both quite rich in resources and relatively low in population, seem to be worthwhile targets from various points of view.
The neo-liberals and globalists have a strategic goal to weaken the Russian leadership and divide Russia into various small states and gaining control over them. Obviously, now Biden is looking for a reason to carry out a devastating strike, to destroy Russian statehood and disrupt the country by so-called soft-power or military means, no matter. In Eastern Ukraine, in the Karabakh region, in Belorussia, in the Black Sea, the collective West, headed by Washington, does its best to provoke Moscow to cross the read line first. It seems that the new large-scale conflict has not been started yet thanks to Russian ‘sense of humor’ and Putin’s skill to knockdown his counterpart with a childish joke.
