Putin Responds to Accusation from Biden: Everything You Say is Yourself
Russian President Vladimir Putin has responded to harsh statements made about him by his American counterpart Joe Biden. Biden had yesterday answered in the affirmative when asked if he thinks Putin is a murderer.
Putin now responds to this with a tune he still knows from the playground. “Everything you say is yourself”. In the meantime, the Russian ambassador to Washington is being recalled.
In a candid interview with the TV channel ABC News, US President Joe Biden did not mince words when it came to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.
When asked if Putin is a murderer, Biden answered “yes”, possibly referring to the poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
When asked about his response, Putin reminded journalists of a childhood verse. “When arguing on the playground, we said,” Everything you say, you are yourself. That’s not just a nursery rhyme, “said Putin. “It has a deeper psychological meaning. We see our own traits in others and think they are like us. We judge their behaviour based on that.”
What would Putin answer to Biden? The journalists also wanted to know. “I would tell him, stay healthy. I wish him good health,” Putin said. “I say that without irony, without jokes.”
Putin also said Russia would defend its interests and cooperate with the United States to be “beneficial”.
