Press secretary of the Russian leader Dmitry Peskov in an interview with “AiF” said that Putin will not allow the United States to speak with Russia from a position of strength.
Peskov, answering the question whether Vladimir Putin was offended by the statement of US President Joe Biden, said that this was an insulting statement and absolutely unprecedented. However, according to him, the president in return sincerely wished Biden health.
“But the essence of his reaction comes down to the initiative to talk, which went unanswered by the Americans. From our point of view, the main thing now is not to let the relationship slide further down the slope. And so a lot of harm was done to them, they need to be reanimated somehow. Therefore, we need to start talking, ”the press secretary emphasized.
We will remind, earlier the head of the American state said that the leadership of the Russian Federation would have to “pay the price” for the attempts to interfere in the elections of the United States attributed to Moscow. In turn, Vladimir Putin wished Biden good health and invited him to talk live.
