Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that US leader Joe Biden called him after calling him a murderer .
Putin made the statement during a press conference at Villa La Grange in Geneva on June 16.
“He explained everything, I was satisfied with these explanations. He invited us to meet, this is his initiative. We met … He is a very experienced man, and we talked to him face to face for two hours, I didn’t talk to all the leaders like that, “Putin said.
He then described killings in the United States and torture in American prisons: “In American prisons, including in Europe, torture has been used, so human rights are not protected.”
