Putin explained why he does not congratulate Biden on winning the US elections

Election Day for the President of the United States took place on November 3, 2020. According to preliminary data, the representative of the Democratic Party, Joe Biden ahead of the American President Donald Trump, representing the Republican Party of the country. Since then, many have wondered why Russian leader Vladimir Putin has not yet congratulated Biden on his victory. Now the Russian president has explained everything, answering the "burning" question.

There is no background whatsoever. Neither the fact that we like someone, someone we do not like. We are just waiting for the end of the internal political confrontation

- assured Putin during the program on the channel "Russia 1".

He noted that Russia is respectful to each of the candidates for the post of the American president. Moscow does not care who wins, Biden or Trump. The Kremlin sees no problems for itself, because it will communicate with any of them. At the same time, Putin drew attention to the observance of formalities, the need to adhere to existing practice and current legislation.

There is no ulterior motive and nothing that would be unusual or could underlie the further destruction of our relationship.

- he specified.

We remind you that the official results of the US presidential elections have not yet been announced. At the same time, leaders of a number of countries have already rushed to congratulate Biden, although Trump disputes the results.

    Gorbachev, on the other hand, congratulated, noted, according to snn:

    Such generous statements stand in stark contrast to the "oppressive silence" of the current Kremlin resident in response to reports of Biden's victory.

    There is no background whatsoever.

    - Trump was the first of the first to congratulate Trump in 2016, and Biden - the last of the last - of course, there is no background ...

    Trump forced to count in one state, it turned out that even more voted for Biden. There is one more state left where he requires a recount, but this will not save him, there is a very large gap between the candidates.

    Putin is really purple about who will win there. There, as a first approximation, 4 scenarios:
    1 Trump
    2 Biden
    And the same scenarios, but adjusted for a serious civil war.
    The options for both Trump and Biden have their pluses and minuses for the Russian Federation.
    Under Trump, the economy will fall, but not as much as under Biden. Because Biden will try to spin the same hurdy-gurdy with financial injections into the banking sector. That will lead at first to (formally) positive results, but after six months or nine months the economy will collapse strongly and for a long time.
    The same options + civil war will exacerbate the problems of both options. Moreover, in Biden's version, this "aggravation" will be unpredictable, catastrophic.
    Putin has probably calculated these options. And he is waiting for the starting shot to sound and it will become clear with whom to run and where.
    It is clear that comparison with 2016. incorrect: then before the elections there were no legal showdowns that cast doubt on the voting results.
    The very existence of these showdowns worsens the position of the United States (regardless of their outcome), calls into question the legitimacy of the authorities.
    A vivid example - Pompeo came to Turkey, and Erdogan (president) and Cavusoglu (Foreign Ministry) stupidly did not find time to meet with him. It is clear that he may be a member of the losing team, but he is the second person in the US leadership. It was possible not to agree on anything, but, at the same time, to comply with the necessary protocols. Just chat.
    And so - it's just a spit on the showcase of the leading (so far) state of the world.
    You can remember the tour of the same Pompeo less than a year ago.
    He galloped across Ukraine, Belarus, Central Asia (attended the "meeting" of the Foreign Ministry, where he "instructed" all the ministers).
    So what? Lukashenka was almost overthrown in Belarus, the reason for which was the show "33 Wagner's Heroes", and Ukraine (as it turned out) had been preparing this show for over a year. Plus the coup in Kyrgyzstan, which the Foreign Ministry instructed Pompeo, among others.
    Impressive, huh?
    And so, such a guy in Turkey was simply sent.
    But Trump still has a chance to stay in office. Who thinks that he will just forget it?

    Biden is not the President of the United States. Elections are their real circus.

    But the liberals of Russia were the first to congratulate
