On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he wants to hold talks with President Biden as soon as possible to discuss US-Russia relations. The invitation comes a day after an interview aired where President Biden agreed that the Russian president was a “killer.”
Putin said the talks should be live and open to the public to view. “I want to offer President Biden that we continue our discussion, but on the condition that we do it live, online, without any delays,” he said. “We could do it tomorrow or, let’s say, on Monday.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about Putin’s offer for live discussions. “I’ll have to get back to you if that is something we are entertaining,” she said, mentioning that Biden and Putin spoke in January. “The President will, of course, be in Georgia tomorrow and quite busy,” she added. Psaki also told reporters that Biden did not regret calling Putin a “killer.”
Earlier on Thursday, Putin responded to Biden’s “killer” comment. Putin said, “Whatever you say [about others] is what you are yourself,” and also wished the American president well. “As far as statements by my US counterpart are concerned. What would I say to him in response? I would tell him: ‘Be healthy!’ I wish him good health,” Putin said, adding that his response was not meant to be ironic.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov also responded to Biden’s interview, calling the comments “very bad” and a sign that the US has no interest in mending relations with Moscow. On Wednesday, after Biden’s interview aired, Russia called its ambassador to the US back to Moscow for “consultations” about US relations.
Besides the harsh rhetoric from Biden, the US has also slapped sanctions on Russia over the jailing and alleged poisoning of opposition figure Alexei Navalny. Sanctions were expanded on Wednesday to tighten export restrictions of certain items to Russia, and the Biden administration is reportedly preparing even more sanctions.

What a laugh! Senile old fool Biden on live TV with Putin will be a great comedy. Of course it will never happen.
They could use it as a skit for Saturday Night Live. We’d have to get Jim Carrey to play Biden because that’s well past Joe’s bedtime.
Correct, and it will then give Putin the opportunity to blast no-press-conference Biden for his “refusal to talk to me.” It’ll be amusing, give it that.
I think -live open debate discussion what once Lenin proposed for international strategies or negotiations with USA /west and also for politburo cabinet meeting .
There were no TV in Lenin time. Besides Lenin was extremely unscrupulous scoundrel the same as the rest of his gang.
Lenin did not ask for the open debtae on the TV .
He wanted politburo decison making process to be open to public.
Of course, Biden can’t accept such a proposition. If he would accept it, the whole world can watch it and laugh at him, and not only online, but even many years later as they’ll have it recorded.
And now Putin joins the tune. This could herald a sea change. It’s an open direct, very public (if rhetorical) challenge to the Imperial Bully Boy. The world is watching to see if Biden can rise to the challenge. If he folds now, the China/Russia/Iran axis will start knocking our pieces off the board, East Ukraine, Taiwan, Pakistan, Venezuela, …
The only way to keep it honest, keep it in the open.
Biden: “Putin still has not released my dementia medicine .All these wishes for good health are nothing but part of the ongoing plan to interfere in my good health.Good good health, health, dementia Crimea Syria, underwater marine oil things against Germany . Putin should release all medicines that Navalry bought for democracy .My democracy .”
Putin needs not to waste his time. The majority of us, the American people, will still go with the deep state/MSM’s (Obama, Clinton, Biden, McCain, etc.) narrative believing Russia still seeks world domination without any attention to reality. That is exactly what Putin described as projection. The British may also be working on a new poisoning false flag if we somehow manage to steer away from war. They are regarded as masters in the field. They may invent something like, “Russians mutilate children.” If you don’t believe me, take a look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atrocity_propaganda. I am afraid we may not wake up until nuclear bombs start dropping.
I am enraged by Biden’s incredibly poor diplomacy. Americans must punish their crime perpetrating leaders, not demand the punishment of foreigners.

I think the Russians have this handled.
