“I wish him good health.” Putin responded to Biden, who called him a murderer
Vladimir Putin commented on the words of his American counterpart Joe Biden, who called the Russian president a murderer. This was discussed during Putin’s videoconference with the Crimean public.
We really know him personally. And what would I answer him. I would tell him: “Be healthy.” I wish him good health. I say this without irony, no jokes. This is the first thing.
Second, if we speak more broadly on this topic, then this is what I would like to say … In the history of every nation, every state there are many very difficult, dramatic and bloody events. But when we evaluate other people, or even when we evaluate other states, other nations, we always look as if in a mirror. We always see ourselves there. Because we always shift onto another person what we ourselves breathe, what we are in essence.
And you know, I remember, in childhood, when we argued with each other in the courtyard, we said: “Whoever calls his name is called that.” And this is no coincidence, this is not just a childish saying and joke. The meaning is very deep in this psychological. We always see our own qualities in another person and think that he is the same as we are. And based on this, we evaluate his actions and give an assessment in general. https://www.youtube.com/embed/P64LTg7BM5E?feature=oembed&iv_load_policy=3&showinfo=0&color=white”Whoever calls his name is called that.” Putin meets BidenMeduza
