According to the sources on Thursday that is 15 April, 2021 President Joe Biden announced a string of measures against the Russian government and Vladimir Putin. This set of measures were awaited for a long time. It is said that these measures are being taken by the Biden administration because of the hacking of government and private networks that were carried out by Russia last year during the presidential election.
Joe Biden’s Accusations Against the Russian President. What Is The Exact Matter.
The measures are part of what Biden’s assistant says to be ” Seen and Unseen” steps counterattacking the hacking. Along with the sanctions against Russia 10 diplomats too were expelled who were believed to have some connection with the Kremlin’s U.S election interference. Which included a massive cyberattack and other hostile activity.
Further, he challenged Joe Biden and asked him to have a conversation live on air. He also rejected Joe Biden’s accusations about the hacking. Russian President called Anatoly Antonov the Russian ambassador to have a conversation in the matter. As it is likely that this will result in Russia and America’s ties getting spoiled. Biden also accused Putin of interfering in the election taken them in favor of Donald Trump.
Vladimir Putin Clearly rejected all the accusations coming from Joe Biden saying –
” Whoever calls names gets called those names”
He also takes this matter back to his childhood and said –
“You know I remember in my childhood when we argue in the playground we used to say, ‘it takes one to know one and that’s not a coincidence, not just a children’s saying or joke. It has a deep psychological meaning. We always see our own traits in other people and think they are like how we really are. And as a result, we evaluated actions and give assessments.”
According to sources, it is said that President Joe Biden called the Russian leader a killer. Vladimir Putin answered this by accusing America of commenting Genocide against Native Americans. He also brings the Hiroshima Nagasaki matter in.
The matter is making the US and Russia’s relation sour. Vladimir Putin has been putting enough effort to make things right but there is no positive response coming from the other side. The Russian foreign ministry in a statement recalling the ambassador home said –
The most important thing for us is to identify ways of rectifying Russia – US relations, which have been going through hard times as Washington has, as a matter of fact, brought them to a blind alley.”
This is not the first time the two are in a massive argument this all began from the time when Joe Biden was a Vice – President during the Obama rule and Vladimir Putin was serving as Prime Minister.
