“There has never been such a thing in history.” Peskov commented on Biden’s words about Putin’s killer
The Kremlin believes that Biden clearly does not plan to establish relations with Russia.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented on US President Joe Biden’s words that Russian President Vladimir Putin was the killer. As reported by TASS, Peskov said that such a thing has never happened in history.
“These are very bad statements by the president of the United States. He clearly does not want to establish relations with our country. We will continue to proceed from this , “Peskov said.
“Yeah, yes, ” Biden said.
Biden also threatened Russia with the consequences of the release of a US intelligence report that the Kremlin was trying to interfere in the 2020 presidential campaign and “denigrate” the candidate from the Democrats.
“He will pay his price. I had a conversation with him and I know him relatively well … I told him: I know you, and you know me. If I find out that it happened, then get ready… “, – said the US President.

According to President Biden, Russia has recalled its ambassador to Washington for consultations.
In March 2021, the US National Intelligence Service stated that during the 2020 presidential election in the United States , Russia organized a campaign to discredit the then still Democratic candidate Joe Biden .
The intelligence report says that the Russians tried to influence the election with their proxies, in particular, People’s Deputy Andriy Derkach and political technologist Konstantin Kylymnyk, who is linked to the FSB.
The authors of the report claim that Derkach “played a significant role in Russia’s attempts to influence the election, he has ties with Russian officials, as well as with Russian intelligence services.” According to intelligence, the Russian agency in Ukraine distributed “Poroshenko-Biden films” and misinformation about Biden’s son Hunter through the US media and Donald Trump’s close associates.
However, intelligence has not recorded any cyberattacks by Russia on the election infrastructure.
The Russian embassy in the United States called the findings of US intelligence on the Kremlin’s interference in the presidential election unfounded.
On November 3, 2020, the US presidential election took place, with Democrat Joe Biden receiving the majority of votes nationwide. In the United States, presidential elections are not direct due to the presence of a Electoral College composed of delegates from each state. According to the results of the December 14 vote, Joe Biden received 306 votes, and his rival Donald Trump – 232 votes. On January 7, Congress approved Biden’s victory in the presidential election.
Russia is currently pursuing an active policy of destabilizing Western democracies, Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, and the Baltic states. In 2016, the Kremlin tried to interfere in the US presidential election, when Republican Donald Trump won.
In 2014, Russia occupied Crimea and inspired separatist demonstrations in Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts. In 2014 and 2015, there was a direct military invasion of the Russian army into the territory of Ukraine to provide military assistance to the militants of Donbass.
The Kremlin denies Russia’s involvement in the war in Donbas, calling it a “civil conflict.” Russia continues to fuel the war in Donbass with money and weapons, creating a full-fledged army of Russian military personnel, Russian citizens and local separatists in the occupied areas. More than 13,000 Ukrainian citizens became victims of Russian aggression. Russian propaganda is also actively involved in the war against Ukraine.
Western intelligence believes that Russian intelligence services are involved in the murder of Putin’s opponent Alexander Litvinenko, the poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny , and the assassination attempt on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter.
