Joe Biden raises the tone in his accusations against Putin, calling the Russian president a “murdering dictator” and a “pure thug”. The Kremlin has not yet reacted, but returned to regret Wednesday’s statements: “Unforgivable”.
After calling Vladimir Putin a “war criminal”, Joe Biden toughened his speech, even more, this Thursday. In a speech at the Friends of Ireland annual luncheon at the Capitol as part of the St Patrick’s Day celebration, the US President accused his Russian counterpart of being a “murderous dictator” and a “pure bully” who unleashed an “immoral war”. against the people of Ukraine”.
Praising the sanctions that Ireland has applied to Russia, Joe Biden stressed that Vladimir Putin is “paying a high price for his aggression”. The US head of state also indicated that Dublin and Washington are “collaborating in an increasingly intense way”, despite the Irish neutral position.
The Kremlin again criticized the US President this Thursday for calling his Russian counterpart a “war criminal”, and has not yet reacted to the latest accusations. “Such statements by Joe Biden are unacceptable, unforgivable and inadmissible,” said Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
Vladimir Putin is “very prudent, an internationally cultured figure and head of the Russian Federation”, underlined Dmitry Peskov, who noted inconsistency in Joe Biden’s words: “He is the head of state of a country that for many years bombed people around the world… The President of such a country has no right to make such statements”.
To justify his point of view, Dmitry Peskov mentioned the use of nuclear bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, during World War II.
