Putin did not rule out the defeat of Biden

Russian leader Vladimir Putin did not rule out that Joe Biden was prematurely proclaimed “President-elect” of the United States.

As you know, Russia has not yet congratulated the 78-year-old Democrat Biden on his victory in the US presidential election. According to Putin, this is due to purely formal reasons.

“Remember, everyone congratulated Ms. [Hillary] Clinton. It turned out later that Trump won. We respect everyone – both the incumbent President Trump and the candidate for this position, Mr. Biden”, – Putin stressed.

At the same time, he assured that Moscow is ready to cooperate with any US president “who will be given the confidence of the American people”. Nevertheless, the election of this person must take place “in a legitimate, legal way”.
