Vladimir Putin commented on an interview with US President Joe Biden, who answered in the affirmative when asked whether he considers Putin to be a murderer.
Putin said that during the colonization of modern US territory, “genocide of the local population” was arranged, and said about the “senselessness” of a US atomic strike on Japanese cities at the end of World War II. The broadcast was hosted by the Russia-24 channel.
“As for the statement of my American colleague, we really, as he said, are personally acquainted. What would I answer him? I would tell him: be healthy! I wish him good health,” Putin said during a teleconference with representatives of the public of the annexed Crimea.
In connection with Biden’s statements, Putin also noted that everyone sees another person the way they assess themselves. “In childhood, when we argued with each other in the courtyard, we said:“ Whoever calls his name is called that. ”And this is no coincidence, this is not just a child’s saying and a joke,” said the 68-year-old politician.
In this context, he recalled the colonization of the United States, the atomic bombing of Japan, and the country’s social problems, expressed in the Black Lives Matter movement.
According to him, Russians and Americans “have different genetic, cultural and moral codes.” But the United States “will have to reckon with” Russia’s defense of its interests, “despite the sanctions and insults,” Putin said.
Earlier Thursday, Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov called Biden’s remarks “very bad,” saying that there were no such precedents in history before (quoted by Meduza). Russia recently summoned its US ambassador to Moscow for consultations – this diplomatic move usually means an expression of extreme political discontent.
