After Donald Trump was elected President of the United States in 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin did not hesitate to welcome him. But four years later, a different picture was seen. Although Joe Biden has been elected, Putin is yet to congratulate him. However, other world leaders have already congratulated Biden and expressed a desire to work with his administration.
According to the UK-based BBC, Putin’s enthusiasm for this time’s election may be less.
Many critics have called Trump a Russian puppet or a favorite of Putin. Joe Biden, on the other hand, is known as a staunch critic of Moscow. He recently described Russia as the biggest threat to the United States.
The Russian media did not show much interest in the news of Biden’s victory. Instead, Biden has been described by Russian media as an elderly man.
Russian media reports say that Putin has yet to congratulate the newly elected US president, noting that the counting of votes in the United States has not yet officially ended. As a result, the Kremlin is taking precautions for understandable reasons. Source: BBC
