>Biden calls for de-escalation of tensions with Russia following sanctions over unproven charges of hacking & election meddling
>US President Joe Biden called for “dialogue and diplomatic process” with Russia, after ordering sanctions against Moscow for allegedly being behind the SolarWinds hack and interfering in “sacred” elections and American democracy.
>Biden said the proposed summit with Putin “this summer in Europe” was still being discussed with the Kremlin, and expressed hope the US and Russia could “launch a strategic dialogue” that would help advance his agenda on Iran, climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic, among other things. He also expressed hope that Russia would not respond to the US sanctions.
What else can you do but laugh your ass off at such a pathetic display? Biden talked so much shit about Putin. He called Putin a soulless murderer, a tyrant, blah blah blah. He swore to punish Putin for all of the terrible crimes he allegedly committed.
But in one week we see:
>US withdrawing its warships from the Black Sea because it's scared of a confrontation with the Russian Navy
>Biden doing a complete 180 on his chest-thumping, and begging Putin to calm down and talk to him so he can plead for mercy
And how does Putin respond to Biden's desperate calls for talk? By ignoring him, because that's what how you're supposed to react to liars. It's a waste of time to speak with someone like Joe Biden so you should just ignore him and go about your business as you normally would.
>Putin WON’T meet Biden in near future, Kremlin says. Moscow not ruling out talks, but disappointed about new sanctions speculation
