Online duel with Putin: President Biden set himself up


US President Joe Biden's harsh words about Vladimir Putin, what he said during an interview with a journalist of the American TV channel ABC News, they made a lot of noise not only in Russia. The entire world press writes about this. Moreover, the overwhelming majority of the media agreed that the head of the White House definitely went overboard in his assessments of the Russian leader.


Politicians, social activists, and ordinary citizens were waiting for only one thing - the reaction of the Kremlin. And not only the president's press secretary, who, by the way, made several vague statements on this matter, but also his boss, Vladimir Putin. However, I didn't have to wait long. The very next day after the publication of Joe Biden's interview, the Russian president, during an online meeting on the socio-economic development of Crimea and Sevastopol, successfully parried the rudeness of his American counterpart. I will not go into the details of his answer, it will be easier to see it with our own eyes.


However, the Kremlin chief decided not to stop there. After the grand opening of the concert in Luzhniki dedicated to the reunification of Crimea and the Russian Federation, the president made another, and much more interesting statement. Or rather a proposal. But what is really there - Vladimir Putin threw down a real challenge to Joe Biden. The Russian President invited his American counterpart to hold a public online discussion in order, as they say, to dot the i's. Something like this is happening for the first time in world practice, as, in fact, the accusation of the leader of a nuclear power in some kind of "murder".


Do you also see this sparkle and excitement in Putin's eyes? He seems to be ready to eat this "cherry on the cake"

It is more likely that Putin's challenge will be either ignored or rejected. The only question is how. Given the harsh words of Joe Biden, as well as the subsequent explanation of the White House press secretary Jen Psaki that her boss "regrets nothing" and "realizes what was said before," the US president has no choice but to declare - "I am not discussing with murderers!" Thus, the point will be put. In relations between Washington and Moscow, of course. The ambassador has already been recalled, and then diplomatic relations will be downgraded to the level of Charge d'Affaires.

The real reason for the likely refusal of the White House from an online duel with the Kremlin lies on the surface. Biden simply will not be able to answer clearly and clearly formulated questions of his Russian counterpart, which will be a universal shame for the American authorities. Not with regards to phantom interference in the US presidential elections in 2016 and 2020, not in the Nord Stream 2 issue, or in fact every month of tightening sanctions that are contrary to international law. There can be only one answer here: Russia is a geopolitical rival, an ideological enemy and a military rival of the United States. And Washington is ready to use any means to neutralize this rival. Of course, Biden is not ready to answer so directly.

Thus, Vladimir Putin puts Joe Biden and the United States in a very uncomfortable position. On the one hand, any awkward refusal will mean weakness and fear. On the other hand, a public discussion between the two leaders will obviously be a losing one for the American. Fork, comrades. Biden, unwillingly, set himself up. Let's see how Washington gets out of this situation.

    Biden spent his entire adult life in politics, he, by definition, should not have said that .... Probably those who talk about the onset of senile dementia are right. Now Putin has all the trump cards in his hands .... he can speak and act as it suits him, without worrying about the moral side of his statements and actions, if we can talk about morality in politics.

      And if he has "senile dementia" (and he undoubtedly has it), then is it not logical to assume that the "interview" was repeatedly edited, viewed, and not in one take? After all, the old man could have fallen asleep, or he could have soaked-off the obscene, which would then have to be retouched by thousands of Psaki, against the background of world laughter ...
      So, everything said is thought out? And deliberately injected like poison?

    This is a "rhetorical" challenge. I don’t think the Kremlin doesn’t understand that this "challenge" will be ignored. Definitely.
    But attempts to smooth out the prevailing atmosphere with all their might will not lead to anything good.
    Non-conflict will be understood as a willingness to make colossal concessions. And the list, in the style - "give us the production of your aluminum and power plant" will be grandiose. If it happened once with power plants and Deripaska, it will turn out to be even more ambitious.
    This is how "non-resistance to evil by violence" leads to even greater evil ...
    But you could "answer" ?! Not symmetrical. Let's say, in the Donbass and in general in Ukraine. For this you need to have the will ...

    And if Biden agreed and on the air repeated his words right in the face of VVP, then what would he have to do? (pee-pee)
    It is impossible to argue with people suffering from senile marasmus, tk. their answers are completely unpredictable.
    It seems that "psakism" continues to develop not only in the Foreign Ministry, but also spread to the Kremlin.

    All this is nonsense.
    When officials recall their offspring from there, when they throw back the US national debt, when they withdraw their money to the Russian Federation, when they refuse Western consulting services at the ministerial level, then we can talk about independent politics.

    And further:

    “Provided that it will be a direct, honest conversation (...) I would not put it on the back burner. On weekends I want to go to the taiga, to relax there a little, but it could be that way either tomorrow, or, say, on Monday. Please, we are ready at any time, convenient for the American side, and I will now give the relevant instructions to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (of Russia) "

    Analyzing the Kremlin's reaction to Biden's words, it seems that the Russian Federation will not tighten its rhetoric.
    Moreover, another line of policy appears. Well, Moscow will not want an open war with the US because it feels it is economically weaker, is fighting Covid19, and is unwilling to accept further sanctions against itself that could weaken it even further (although I personally think this is some kind of global conspiracy). Not yet.

    I have no censorship words! What a shame that rules us!

    successfully parried the rudeness of his American colleague.

    Whoever calls names, he himself is called that. And this is called "successful"? Was it Putin who fought in the Leningrad gateways like that? When diplomacy ends, you have to fight or respond to rudeness with rudeness. Can you imagine Putin imposing sanctions on the CIA Director, the US Attorney General, or the same Psaki? And Biden is easy! Because "slaves" cannot impose sanctions on gentlemen. And "slaves" have no right to defend themselves. They only have the right to endure all the humiliations. They did not answer the searches of our diplomats. Remember? Putin is still in litigation.

    The President of Russia invited his American counterpart to hold a public online discussion,

    And if ZE Putin proposes the same? And the whole "Ukrainian army" will "suck" it and admire the genius of WE. Can you imagine that Putin would agree to such a discussion? The same! You can’t be so mediocre and not see how Putin, with his answers, disgraced the whole world?
    What to do? "The pans are fighting, but the forelocks of the slaves are cracking." Ukraine is the closest "mongrel" of the United States. It’s the very thing to win back on it. Diplomacy is over. Take away all Russian lands or annex it makes no difference. Biden considers Ukraine to be his fiefdom. So to deprive him of this feeder. Or nationalization in the country, of course, this is from the realm of fantasy.

Leave yourself, Putin's friends have long since changed their place of residence together with their families. And that suits you.

      Very accurate and correct answer to the article.
      Who is Putin for the West and the United States, a usurper of power, a worthless and rather thieving ruler. He was forced to be invited to all sorts of summits (I think that Bokasu was also invited), but this is a necessary measure. In a healthy mind, no one would say hello to the Kremlin inmates.
      Old Biden, won a very sharp political struggle and knows his own worth.

    He would have talked to I. Musk first. He offered to talk to Putin. Yes, something hushed up this case, Vladimir Vladimirovich.
    In general, Putin's challenge to Biden's verbal duel is a very bold step. And the courage of Putin is that Biden will not take up chatting with him. Prior to that, the permanent leader of the Russian people had never participated in any debates. Afraid of sharp unprepared questions. Always, always prepared performances where everything is prepared in advance.

          If China were the main enemy, the Yankees would have declared so (they are not shy in expressions ... what to do with them - in that leadership are the descendants of all that criminality that ISTORGLA is a European Nazi). BUT! They hope (still) to come to an agreement with China (as they STILL consider China to be their factory), therefore they call China as long as a rival. Not knowing that everything has already been decided in China and they see their path as the path of an INDEPENDENT player in the international arena. We are not economically rivals for either one or the other. BUT! (again) Both the Americans and the Chinese understand perfectly that without Russia, NOTHING is done on the planet. Russia is everywhere and everywhere. And the Chinese were the first to understand this, deciding to have the Russian Federation as their friends (no, but friends), and the Yankees decided to repeat the fate of all those who declared a "threat to the world community" .... And where are all these "menacers" ?? ? And where they belong - in the dustbin of history and in the lines of history textbooks - JUST!

            The relationship between states is not a relationship between two people. China and the United States are very dependent on each other. There can be no break, which means they will agree. Two economic giants, each about 20% + 20%.
            What can the Russian Federation offer to the same China with 1,8% of world GDP being technologically backward, moreover, a state?

    I did not notice that Biden set himself up rather on the contrary, he once again expressed disdain: like, well, what to talk about with the "killer" .. And secondly, he kind of hinted. that somehow he will communicate i.e. put him in line and did not consider the days that Putin designated, which is also quite competent ... In addition, the White House later gave an explanation of what Biden had in mind, it is logical that he could not say otherwise, since everyone knows that Putin with the United States accused of attempted murder of Navalny and are going to impose sanctions
