US President Joe Biden presented to Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Geneva summit a crystal statuette of a bison and aviator glasses.
This is reported by TASS .
The figurine is installed on a cherry wood plinth: it should remind of the first US President George Washington. On the pedestal “there is an engraved inscription in honor of the meeting between President Biden and President Putin.” The bison is “one of the most magnificent animals” in the United States and symbolizes “strength, unity and resilience.”
In turn, Vladimir Putin presented his American colleague Joe Biden with a Moscow set with Khokhloma painting.
