'I Wish Him Well': Putin Responds to Biden's Comments about Him

US President Joe Biden previously told ABC News that his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin would "pay a price" for alleged interference in the 2020 US presidential vote, also agreeing when journalists asked if Putin is a "killer", Sputnik reported on Thursday.

Putin has addressed Joe Biden's controversial statement about alleged Russian meddling in the 2020 presidential elections, which took a personal turn against him.

"As for the statement by my American counterpart, we really are, as he said, personally acquainted. What would I answer him? I would tell him: stay healthy! I wish him good health", the Russian president said, stressing he is not joking or being ironic.

 "There have been many difficult, dramatic, and bloody events in the history of each nation. But when we assess other people, when we assess other states, other peoples, we are always looking in the mirror. We always see ourselves there", Putin said.

According to the president, the American governing class was formed in the age of the conquest of the continent by Europeans, "which was linked to elimination of the local population, this was direct genocide of Indian tribes".

Putin stressed that the US will have to take Russian interests into account.

 The statement comes after Russia invited Ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov back to Moscow for consultations "in order to analyze what needs to be done in the context of relations with the United States".

on her part, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that Washington's behavior has steered its relations with Russia and its own ideology into a dead end.

She believes that Washington’s demonization of Russia has exhausted itself.

"This Russian card, in fact, an anti-Russian one, which they have so long played inside their own country to fool the American people and, in fact, to mock the American people, has resulted in a stalemate," Zakharova said, according to Itar Tass.
