Russia called its ambassador to the US back to Moscow on Wednesday after an interview of President Biden aired where Biden called Russian President Vladimir Putin a “killer.”
In the interview, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked President Biden if he believes that Putin is a “killer,” to which Biden responded, “Uh-huh. I do.” Biden said he once told Putin that he believed the Russian leader had no “soul.”
Stephanopoulos and Biden also discussed an assessment from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence that claimed Putin sought to hurt Biden in the 2020 election. Biden said Putin will “pay a price” for the allegations made by the ODNI.
Like most US claims of Russian meddling, no evidence has been presented to back up the latest allegations besides the intelligence assessment, and the ODNI report did not explain how the conclusion was reached. Russia dismissed the accusation as “baseless” and said the assessment was likely going to be used as a pretext for sanctions.
Announcing the recall of the US ambassador, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said Moscow was hoping for better relations with the US.
“Russian Ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov has been invited for consultations in order to figure out what to do and where to move in terms of relations with the United States,” Zakharova said in a statement. “The main thing for us is to find out ways to improve Russia-US relations,” she added.
Also on Wednesday, the US slapped more sanctions on Russia over the alleged poisoning of opposition figure Alexei Navalny. A report from CNN on Tuesday night said the US is expected to impose more sanctions on Russia next week over the ODNI report on the 2020 election.

Biden is so blitzed, I doubt he even knows who he’s sanctioning anymore. The neocon press just points and he says “uh-huh.”
Exactly. Lights on, nobody home.
Sometimes it even looks as though the lights are dimmed.
Well to be fair Trump didn`t know what country he was bombing .
Obama/Biden instigated the 10 year insurgency in Syria that killed 200,000 people and displaced a million civilians. Their regime change policy is well documented. Biden calling anyone else a cold blooded killer is sickeningly duplicitous.
Brain dead Biden reading state propaganda.
Yes … remember, chaos is the plan; chaos sells weapons:
He’s also continuing to support Saudi Arabia in its starvation of Yemen.
Yes because Russia and co did not possibly stir the pot from the opposite end right? You Russian troll bots and dictator loving white red necks propaganda really needs to be better than this<_<
Russia wasnt in Syria WHEN the US started to fund Al Nusra Front an Al Qaeda based group we previously knew as Al Qaeda in Iraq, the same group after the US provided thousands of vehicles , training and other logistics, including TOW anti tank Missiles and other weapons, and who Israel was providing medical treatment for and then two thirds decided to form ISIS taking all of that US provided materiel. I suppose you also think that Syria was using Sarin, when Turkey caught a group of Al Nusra Front Terrorists with Sarin gas drums inside Turkey. Just so you actually know Sarin has a very short half life, as in several days,
Show verified independent proof that is not from a government sponsered news site and maybe I will take such accusations a little more seriously. Until than your just another Qanon red neck or Russian bot who will believe anything as long as the internet tells them its true.
That is utter bs. Russia had advisors and mercs in Syria from the very beginning of the unrest. So try again.
Stephanopoulos is a zionist thug…!
Wait, it gets worse — Blinken and Sullivan talking down to China tomorrow.
American officials set to attend the summit — including National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and Secretary of State Antony Blinken — have characterized the meeting as a one-off event where the U.S. will confront the Chinese on a range of security and human rights issues that Beijing will need to address before it can improve relations with Washington.
Chinese officials, by contrast, have spun the meeting as an opportunity for Washington and Beijing to reset their relationship and, as the world’s leading powers, hash out the new international order. . .here
The pot calling the kettle black.
The real “killer” is Biden with his over the top support for abortion on demand with tax payer funding. He’s a fine one to talk about Putin’s soul.
This behavior is symptomatic of a much wider and deeper malaise . No self respecting nation with confidence about itself will reach this low. But it serves a purpose – it keeps the plebeians disengaged or arrogantly stupidly smug also sometimes provides excuse and escape route for a lot of politicians who otherwise might be asked to pay attention to the dire needs of the country.
According to the Bible we are all killers. “He who is angry with a brother or sister is guilty of murder” ” judge not and be not judged”.
The bible also says its ok to whip disobedient slaves and that is in the New Testament.
hmmm….. if Putin is “a killer”, then Biden is a mass murderer.
Here I thought he knew what he was doing. I guess this means there will be no return to the START Treaty any time soon.
Let’s see, he rattled the cage in NK, then, he talks about laying sanctions on Iran, which may mean no return to JCPOA any time soon.
Who the h*ll is advising him?
Principally Antony Blinken and Jake Sullivan, two of the worst.
“the alleged poisoning of opposition figure Alexei Navalny”???
Gee Dave can you be a bit more bias?
Or this: “Like most US claims of Russian meddling, no evidence has been presented”
When you put stupid pieces like this in an article you poison whatever good you had in it.
Why are they stupid? There are genuine questions about all of these incidents.
a) Navalny was po9isoned and now in a really viscous prison
b) Russia did not/ does not ‘meddle’?
The world is not flat sir, and to debate such or teach a wall is mute.
A wall could teach you a few things.
Navalny is a foreign agent sent in with foreign money and help to subvert his own country. He’s lucky they did not shoot him.
A bit rich for a complicit mass murderer to call another president a “killer”.
One of the (very) few things I appreciated about the late, and mostly unlamented, departed president Trump was he would occasionally tell the truth of empire in all its unvarnished horror.
For example, early in his presidency, some imperial lackey reporter asked him about “but isn’t Mr. Putin a killer” and he replied “don’t you think we have killers on our side,” which drove CNN and the rest of the praetorian press guard into fits of rage. And it was all true …
Wasn’t that O’Reilly? If so, then yes, it was a lackey reporter.
Slightly reminded of this pot and kettle thing
Dear President LameBrain,
Mr. Putin, ever wiser than you, suggests you are projecting when you claim he is a killer. Isn’t that obvious? And his further response, He wishes you well despite your bellicose remarks. Is dementia causing your belligerency or is it just exacerbating what already exists?
John Q Public wants to know.
Poor man, if nit reading the script — he is in trouble. He did not know how to answer provocative question — so he agreed. Coming up with an answer worthy a statesman on the spot, is beyond his capability.
Unintentionally or not, Stephanopoulis set him up.
Exactly. Too damned senile to even realize he was saying it. He meant it, but he still wouldn’t have said it if he was coherent. Can’t wait for the March 25th press conference. It’s going to be brutal.
Putin, czar ,tzar,spy,patriot, cool, but above all at this stage is power,more and more forever….Because as all who has too much power, they dont listen too well to anyone more,because they are poisoned by their own egos,by yesmen, and inside an ego that cannot be sated,and this is true for virtually all folks of power through the ages, all over the world in every society. These egos that aim for godhood…Hilarious. Clinging to power for every sec…
You make Biden sound articulate.
And this is us with “diplomacy back” and “adults in charge” I take it?
The plain childishness of these comments is just absolutely astonishing. He’s a “killer” and “has no soul”? Really? Europeans must be groaning at what they need to work under.
“While Mr. Biden told ABC that he would continue to look for places “where it’s in our mutual interest to work together” with Russia, some officials in Moscow responded by dismissing the possibility of any cooperation.”
We are so arrogant that we think calling another country’s leader a “killer” will have no ramifications in our diplomatic dealings with that country. Just like us calling Iran a “state sponsor of terrorism” and expecting them to come to the negotiating table to redo the JCPOA
This is why they keep him muted as much as possible. He’s already rehearsing (if that’s possible with his reduced mental faculties) the answers to the questions that will be known in advance (and displayed on a teleprompter), during his so-called press conference.
According to this article he was prompted by Stephanopoulos to say Putin is a killer and may not actually have said the word himself.
I don’t know about Biden’s mental facilities but his story about telling Putin he has no soul says all you need to know about his fitness as leader of the country and commander-in-chief.
Stephanopoulos’ questioning says all we need to know about the media
I’d prefer one or two Republicans point to Biden’s diminished mental capacity. Perhaps the political implications or harming financial markets precludes such a gesture.
The ultimate Republican strategy may be for Biden and the Democrats to unwittingly bury themselves. Party before country.
No different than Reagan calling the USSR the evil empire, not surprisingly that Putin was part of the Ruling circles as a secret police man. On another accusation you made on Israel. Millions of tourist visit Israel and the West Bank every year, we have not heard from one , accusing Israel of nay human rights violation’s described by you. Yes, there is a border and security fence and check points between Israel and the the Palestinian territories and for good reason. Since its construction, very few terrorists have infiltrated Israel to kill civilians. Over 1000 Israelis where killed, maimed explosion’s, knifings and shootings before the fences were installed.
Lol biden needs to look in a mirror.
Putin just challenged Biden to a duel! A modern duel — a live debate. Bring up all the issues, and as Putin said, it will be informative to Russian and American people, as well as people globally. No preconditions.
How will Biden get out of this? Ignore it? Or just dig the heels deeper, throw more insults?
And just think, they wanted to invoke the 25th amendment on Trump whereas Biden is the president that is stupidly antagonizing a nuclear power led by someone 10x his intellect
Biden has had a direct influence on all the killing that has gone on in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and he points his finger at others . The guy who questioned him on the TV knew all this.
This is an American pattern. Commit the crime, and accuse another.
