Russian President Vladimir Putin has finally congratulated Joe Biden after winning the U.S. electoral votes to confirm an election that was first called by mainstream media last month in Biden’s favour.
Vladimir Putin was not moved by the gang activity of the mainstream media who called the U.S. 2020 presidential election in favour of Joe Biden while votes were still being counted and some states disputed by President Trump. Not even when some shaking world leaders were very quick to congratulate him, Mr Putin refused to do so.
But after the electoral college vote result, Mr Putin has reportedly sent a telegram yesterday to offer his congratulations.
Russia’s state news agency Tass wrote, “The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin sent a congratulatory telegram to Joseph Biden on the occasion of the victory in the presidential elections of the United States of America. In the telegram, Putin wished the president-elect every success.”
The statement quoted Putin as saying, “For my part, I am ready for interaction and contacts with you. Expressed confidence that Russia and the United States, bearing special responsibility for global security and stability, can, despite their differences, really contribute to solving many problems and challenges that the world is currently facing”.
Vladimir Putin before the election hinted he would work with any US leader but noted what he described as Biden’s “sharp anti-Russian rhetoric”.
Joe Biden ahead of the election described Russia as an ‘opponent’ and the state that poses the ‘biggest threat’ to America’s security.
President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin have a long history of complementing each other with the Russian leader describing the current U.S. president as a talented person who “knows very well what his voters expect from him.”
